Location Lighting for the Outdoor Photographer is a 361 page e-book and is packed with pretty much everything I know about using artificial lighting in the outdoors. If you are looking to take your photography to the next level and want to incorporate artificial lighting into your images then this book will give you all the tools to do just that. This e-book is filled with detailed lighting diagrams and examples, an extensive chapter on equipment and flash accessories, advanced flash techniques and so much more.
This newly updated version also includes an extensive, in-depth chapter on advanced lighting techniques like HSS, Hypersync and Hi-Sync (HS).
There are so many lighting books to choose from these days you might be wondering, "How is this one different?" This is the first book that I know of that concentrates on lighting techniques for the outdoor and adventure photographer specifically. This book gets down to the nuts and bolts of using artificial lighting in remote locations. As with my other books, I hold nothing back and tell it like I see it. The opening chapter has a detailed analysis of all the battery-powered strobes on the market today and compares them head-to-head to help you make a smart decision when considering new gear. In that chapter, we also discuss flashlights, reflectors, and Speedlights.
I can honestly say that I have not seen any other book on the market today that includes as much detailed and comprehensive information as this e-book does on using artificial lighting for the outdoor photographer. If you have read any of my other books or e-books then you know I pack as much as possible into them and cover all the bases. This book is no different. I have held nothing back and in this book I share with you all of my lighting secrets and techniques.

A few testimonials about Michael's other books:
"I have just finished reading your Lightroom 3 e-book and I found it to be both very readable and thoroughly informative. I have also recently read Scott Kelby's book on Lightroom 3 (as I'm a big Kelby fan) and found your book much easier to follow. I especially like the fact you that also included the details about your pre-shoot workflow, settings etc. I eagerly await your next e-book!" - Andrew Boyd
“This book is exactly what I was looking for and suddenly Lightroom is making much more sense to me now (after an hours reading) than a month reading the User Guide and sitting hunched over the computer staring at Lightroom itself and trying to see it as a workflow tool compared to Nikon's Capture NX2. The descriptions of the modules and the tools within them strikes the right balance of practical use and how they affect an image. You have also produced the best 'camera set-up' section I've read." - Matt Hunt
"The download worked perfectly. It looks like a very nice piece of work. Many thanks for putting this together.” - Trevor Peterson, New York, NY
"I am a long term Lightroom user and was a bit hesitant to buy a book about a program I use almost daily because I didn't think it could offer me anything I didn't already know. But now, after some late nights of reading, I find your book really helpfull. Amongst lots of tricks and hints, the chapters about color management and the reasoning behind your using Photoshop CS5 in addition to Lightroom makes me rethink my workflow even though up to now I am most of the time happy with how my clients print my images. Thanks for your great work and greetings from Switzerland." - Bernard van Dierendonck
“Thank you very much for granting me the use of your excellent ebook. The workflow format really got my attention. Your pictures add kick and a seamless flow which you don’t get when a mix of work is used. I also appreciate the compact, to the point approach.” - Barbara Southworth, Instructor at Northern Virginia Community College who is using the Lightroom eBook as a text for her class.
“Thanks for making the e-purchase so easy. I’ve got it downloaded and checked." - Dave Gatley Photography
“The Lightroom book is great. Very readable!” - Richard Hughes
Your Workflow book is a great help for muddled digital heads. It's a profound humanitarian service.” - Fred Lyon
“Many thanks, Michael. As you stated, the PDF printed out just fine. I look forward to using it to help with my workflow.” - Richard Meadow
