The New Book & The Next Book

Filed under: Lighting Technique,My Books! — John Siskin @ 6:15 pm

coverI want to just include an update of my publishing projects. My first book, now titled Understanding and Controlling Strobe Lighting, A Guide for Digital Photographers is due out in the fall. I’ve attached a copy of the cover. Of course I’ll post ordering information as soon as it is available. My publisher Amherst Media has accepted the outline for my second book. This is tentatively titled: Lighting spaces, a photographers guide to lighting architecture, commercial and other big spaces with flash and ambient (light)

As I begin work on this book I have realized that this will provide some wonderful opportunities for teaching. If you are interested in learning architectural lighting please send me an e-mail at There will be very few spaces for each location, so give me some idea of your interests. I will include a teaching session with each shoot, so you should have a complete experience.

I will also have an article about architectural photography in Photo Technique Magazine in the May/June issue. I am very excited to be included in the updated version of Photo Techniques Magazine. You can see a couple of my previous articles about architectural lighting at these links and You may have to right click and choose save page as to download these articles.

I’ll finish up this week with a few of my favorite architectural photos. All of these images are linked to larger versions on my site. Thanks, for your attention! John Siskin
