For professional photographers, chasing the light, waiting for it, sometimes helping it, and finally capturing it is a constant preoccupation and for some, an obsession. Drawing on four decades of working with light, Michael Freeman takes a simple but practical approach to interpret, reacting to, and capturing photography’s most valuable commodity.
Practical advice is organized into three straightforward sections: Waiting, Chasing and Helping. Begin by mastering the art of patience, and recognize the immense value of anticipating and planning for gorgeous light that’s just over the horizon. Then learn the techniques to meet otherwise transient and fleeting lighting conditions halfway, with quick thinking and fast reactions.
