Seeing the Light
You spot a breathtaking scene, whip out your camera, and excitedly capture the image forever. But wait! How come it looks so flat on the screen?

In Seeing the Light, Mitchell gives you this ability by showing you a new way to think about lighting – one that will improve every single photo you take.
With Mitchell’s in-depth examples and lighting charts, you’ll see how to set up your shot to maximize lighting effectiveness. Learn exactly how to use different types of light to add drama, show depth, and make your photos stand out.

After understanding his methods, you’ll know exactly how to naturally improve your own photos after you take them and also help you in Understanding Post-Processing.
