Documenting the process of lighting studio portraits from start to finish, this handy manual covers both the artistic and technical aspects of achieving success. Short one- or two-­page lessons are amply illustrated to guide the reader through each phase, and before-­and-­after images—or image sequences showing variations and alternative approaches—are presented to facilitate understanding. Noting that light can present a special challenge that is part art and part science, new photographers are encouraged to bring this guide to practice sessions. By working on replicating or refining the provided examples, a self-­study course can be created, allowing for comprehensive learning.

This past summer, America watched helplessly as it happened repeatedly: unarmed black men shot, choked, often killed by fearful white officers. When television cameras and reporters descended upon Ferguson, Missouri to cover protests and rioting after a police officer shot 18 year-­old Michael Brown, pundits who hadn't heard of Ferguson a week earlier filled the airwaves pontificating about the root causes. But one question went answered: What about St. Louis’s history, economics, politics, leadership structure, and culture set it apart from the myriad other cities and towns that quietly endured similar tragedies? In this Kindle Single, urban policy professor and former Missouri State Senator Jeff Smith explores the roots of Ferguson's rage – and offers insights on how other cities can address their own simmering issues of racial and class inequality so that they can avoid the reckoning St. Louis faces.

Jeff Smith is Assistant Professor at The New School's Milano Graduate . . .

There are many aspects to professional photography: composition, camera angles, exposure, color balance, posing, and lighting- just to name a few. However, while each of these aspects of photography is important in the creation of a professional portrait, lighting presents a special challenge that is part art and part science. When the two come together effectively, the results are stunning; when any one aspect of the recipe falls short, the result is a poor exposure or a downright unflattering look.­On the artistic side of the scale, lighting is one of the primary tools for setting the mood of the portrait. It can communicate a sense of bright, airy ease or sharp, dramatic tension-­or anything in between. Determining what look is right for the client (and for their intended use of the resulting portraits) is a key decision. From there, the photographer can begin to use light to sculpt the subject’s features, minimizing problem areas or accentuating the subject’s best features . . .
