Review I work as a computer artist an animator, and constantly search for good books on lighting. In my opinion, this is one of the best lighting books available to the artist, along with the classic from John Alton "Painting with Light". Still Life (PLS) gives simple explanations of light setup, digramatic views of the situation, as well as comments from the photographers about what they were trying to achieve, and why they did certain procedures.
The light setups here are easily adaptable to suit whatever still life (including products) you are photographing/rendering, and I have found it easy to adapt certain lights used into the realm of 3D computer graphics (soft boxes etc are easy to recreate....)
