    I am a beginer in studio photography and I am looking for a few books to learn. I found a loot of books on the net, and I am a little disoriented. Please if someone could guide me to the books that are good indeed for learning studio lighting secrets. Thank you in advance,

    Adison.

    ...welcome to the *fun* world of studio photography!

    There is a bewildering selection of books to choose from and i presume by "studio lighting secrets" you refer to actual lighting set ups for achieving various results. Yes?

    I can't recommend any books of that genre - but hopefully someone will be along soon who can

    However, the "secret" (if there is one) of successful studio work is to understand lighting ratios

    In simple language: how to meter the individual lights, and/plus their accumulated output, so as to correctly expose your setting

    Although technical and somewhat complicated, a proficient studio shooter will have mastered this; it is most important if one wishes to control results

    Studio work is heaps(!) of fun - but also very challenging because the final outcome is always a reflection (x'cuse the pun) of one's understanding of those principals and their application

    Understand lighting ratios - and your work will only be limited by your imagination...

    Have fun!

    :)

    P.S. i love your quote from EISENSTAEDT
