Fotografieren mit Studio-­Blitzanlagen ist nicht nur ein Thema für wenige Top-­Fotografen. Das Thema ist derart vielschichtig, kreativ und lehrreich, dass es jetzt und in der Zukunft auch ein Thema für ein breites, populäres Hobby bleiben sollte! Dabei darf die Technik für den Einstieg nicht zu kompliziert, zu teuer werden, die Publizistik nicht "abheben" und das Thema in elitäre Höhen auf und davon tragen. So hat der Autor einen Leitfaden für Anfänger und Einsteiger geschrieben und es geschafft, das Thema Studio-­Fotografie didaktisch so aufzubereiten, dass man zu guten und attraktiven Ergebnissen gelangt, ohne dass das Budget einer "Durchschnittsfamilie" gleich ins Wanken gerät.

Light Art Performance Photography (LAPP) is a unique form of art that was invented and developed by the authors of this book. It is one of the first forms of art using light as the medium to gain widespread attention. Unlike other types of light painting, LAPP does not just involve illuminating existing objects; it also requires the photographer to create and capture new subjects constructed entirely of light. LAPP pieces are usually shot at night using long exposure times to capture complex sequences of precisely choreographed movements. Real-­world surroundings are combined with transient, light-­based elements to produce spectacular effects. The defining characteristic of LAPP is the harmony between the background and the harsh light often used to produce the individual image elements. The symbiosis between photographer and performer gives each work a degree of reproducibility that is essential if it is to be accurately restaged at a later time. The first part of this book . . .
