Picture Perfect Lighting

My third book is Picture Perfect Lighting.

My publisher Rocky Nook describes this book with the following language

"In Picture Perfect Lighting, Roberto has created a truly original system for understanding and controlling light in photography.

After discussing the universal nature of light, Roberto introduces the five key behaviors of light, which are essential to understand in order to improve your knowledge of light.

With those behaviors established, Roberto introduces his concept of “circumstantial light,” an ingenious way of examining and breaking down the light around you in any given situation.

Providing a detailed analysis of circumstantial light, Roberto develops the top ten circumstantial light elements you need to know in order to fully harness the power of the light around you to create an image that is true to your vision."

This book is currently the No. #1 New Release on Photographic Lighting books on Amazon.
