“Joey Lawrence is . . . the future of photography. Get used to it.” —David Hobby (Strobist)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Aspiring photographers are always looking for that edge, that fresh point of view to add drama to their images. Photographer Joey L. found his vision early, drawing critical acclaim as a brilliant commercial photographer with a distinctive technical expertise for lighting.
            In Photographing Shadow and Light, Joey lifts the curtain on his dramatic, creatively fearless approach to portraiture, sharing his personal philosophy and a behind-the-scenes look at 15 striking photo sessions—from personal projects shot in Africa, India, and Brooklyn to commercial shoots for 50 Cent, the Jonas Brothers, and Project Runway All Stars. Joey provides readers with a step-by-step description of how he visualized each shoot, formed meaningful connections with his subjects, and “built” his signature dramatic lighting effects—one light at a time.
            Featuring more than 85 stunning portraits, detailed lighting diagrams, and a foreword from industry icon David Hobby (aka Strobist), Photographing Shadow and Light shares the creative process behind one of today’s most exciting photography talents, providing serious amateurs and professionals a fresh perspective on creating compelling, professional quality portraits.
“Joey Lawrence is . . . the future of photography. Get used to it.” —David Hobby (Strobist)

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A book for all photographers 12 janvier 2013

I had a hard time deciding how to rate this book. While I'm not sure who the book's target audience was, it is fitting for all photographers who want expand their horizons or pros to relook at how they shoot. The more experienced will probably underrate the book while beginners might overate the book. Overall, the book is a good source for learning and provides a lot of insight.

Joey L.'s book is a concise documentary of some of his work. The best of the book is the many photos you get of Joey L.'s work (5 stars). His description of styles and techniques (2 stars) are reminiscent of many photographers learning to light and photograph people. But he does get into some advanced lighting. His understanding of building rapport with his subjects is unusual for young photographers - he gets it! And the book could almost be a marketing tool for Profoto Pro 7b battery pack , Profoto flash heads, and Elinchrome's Rotalux Softbox Octa but does demonstrate the flexibly of this equipment.

The book is not the type of book that is a compelling read but one you can read and come back to later. I had to take a second look at much of the book before I really deciphered that there was really large amount information is in the book.

I have been following JoeyL for a long time now. The book was good but I was a little upset by all the recycled material. A lot of the information can be found on his DVDs and even in his blog.

If you haven't seen any of his DVDs then this book will be great for you!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Avoid the Kindle version - missing content 30 décembre 2012

Well, years after the Kindle came out (used the iPad version in this case to have color). You would think publishers have figured out that just pushing a digital file with text and photos through some piece of software doesn't create a quality experience.

- text breaks and picture alignment - horrible
- photos seem to have gone completely missing from the 2nd half of the book. The last photo is at 39% - after that. Nothing

I'm happy to try the paper version - but stay away from the Kindle one. Useless, unless fixed.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 It's all about ME! 12 décembre 2012
Par Brent A. Thale - Publié sur

"Photographing Shadow and Light" is a difficult book to like. It's filled with expertly lit, well-directed commercial and fine art pictures, with the photographer's commentary on equipment used, camera settings, and his recollections of interacting with the subject during the shoot. However, I can't get past my perception of the author's arrogance and self-centered attitude that his writing style brings across. So many "I", "Me", and "My" words makes it seem like the author is more interested in celebrating his own greatness than in communicating useful information. For example, on page 35, there are 15 occurrences of "I" and "My" in one paragraph! No "I" in "team", ring a bell?

Anyway, the book covers a number of the author's shoots, many of which use surprisingly simple lighting involving an assistant holding a giant octobox, underexposing the ambient light, and using the sun as a rim light. Most of the photos are quite nice, ranging from celebrities to aboriginal people to unknown musical groups. There is even a small cosplay section, although from my point of view the cosplay shots were some of the weaker ones in the book.

The author is firmly in the "Make the shot" school of photography (as opposed to just taking a shot), and his work shows it with clean frames and appealing compositions. I'm all for that in most cases, but there is a line that can be crossed there, and I didn't care for the dust jacket shot of the two native tribesmen in traditional dress acting as the author's lightstands, it just seems like a sad caricature of how the people being photographed so lovingly don't really exist anymore.

I still give the book 4 stars based on the sheer quality of the work done, very nice pictures indeed.

This is a nice exposition of Joey L.'s photography and I would recommend it to anyone interested in his art. It's much less useful to someone trying to learn the art of lighting himself.
