The guide then focuses on portable lighting solutions that a single photographer can use—with minimal or no assistance—to customize the given light, from on-camera flashes and monolights with battery packs to umbrellas, soft boxes, and LED video lights. Numerous examples of difficult lighting situations are offered, as well as the progression of different light sources used—both correctly and incorrectly—to capture the final photograph.
