In this book, award-winning photographer and photo-educator Daniel N. Doke teaches beginning photographers the skills they need to effectively light and capture posed and action images of dancers both in the studio and outdoors. Readers will learn to efficiently use a basic lighting setup with one light and will move on to discover strategies for using two and three lights for a more complex, polished look.

Readers will also learn how to harness outdoor lighting using modifiers to create more flattering effects and will discover tips for seamlessly working in hard high-noon light, using flash to overpower the sun, and in challenging low-light/nighttime scenarios. Metering/exposure techniques are covered, as well, as are tips for selecting backgrounds (in the studio and on location) for enhanced portrait results.

With the techniques in this book, photographers new to dance photography will realize professional lighting skills, increased efficiency, increased confidence, and heightened artistry
