Light and Lighting is an upcoming book from Syl Arena. His last book, Speedliter’s Handbook, is awesome and takes the cake in terms of Canon Speedlite instruction.  It’s the book that should come with every Speedlite sold – or, at least the book that anyone who wants to learn how to properly use a Speedlite with their Canon camera.

Syl takes a more basic and brand-agnostic approach with Light and Lighting, as he notes below.

As part of Peachpit’s From Snapshots to Great Shots series, it will present fundamental concepts about light and various techniques of photographic lighting at a level accessible to novice shooters.

Syl is a great photographer and author.  Expect this to be a real gem for getting your lighting feet underneath you.  Light and Lighting is due out in June of this year and is available for pre-order from Amazon now.
