Seeing the Light – A Great E-book from Mitchell Kanashkevich

Screen shot 2009-12-08 at 8.00.07 PM.pngAs a photographer one of the most important aspects of your craft to learn about and get a handle on is Light.

To help you do this Travel and Documentary photographer Mitchell Kanashkevich has put together one of the better E-books that has come out in the last little while – Seeing the Light. As Mitchell says in the introduction of the E-book – ‘light is inseparable from the subject matter, it’s as important as the person in the image.’

I got myself a copy a couple of weeks ago and have found myself dipping back into it many times since.

The book is broken down into 3 main areas:

  1. Flash
  2. Reflector
  3. Natural Light

Each section introduces you to the topic, looks at equipment you might need and then gives you some great teaching on how to use it and ‘sculpt’ your subject with the light from that technique.

Each page of the E-book gives you wonderful case study images and illustrates how they were lit with helpful diagrams – as you’ll see in these example pages:


Before you get yourself a copy – make sure to check out the free preview pdf which tells you more about the E-book and gives table of contents. Also check out Mitchell’s other E-book tutorial on the sales page – Understanding Post-Proccessing, an E-book on post-processing photographs in Photoshop and Lightroom. Through in-depth step by step tutorials, illustrations and explanations, it will help you produce striking images with plenty of impact.

Both E-books are value for money at $12 – grab your copies here.
