I'm so much more in love with light after reading this book! Captivated me in a simple way to explain such a complicated issue.
This book covers the most important element to photography, which is light. I learned some of this the hard way. I wish that I read this book years ago. I have missed so many great opportunities by not understanding natural light. Everyone interested in photography want amazing images, which can only be accomplished with proper lighting.
An ok read
Over all for a free book there was some ok information. It will not be very helpful if you have the slightest idea about photography, I would just pay for a composition book that would cover these topics but give you f/stops and shutter speeds to try and recreate images of your own.
