Capturing the Light starts with a tiny scrap of purple-tinged paper, 176 years old and about the size of a postage stamp. On it you can just make out a tiny, ghostly image of a gothic window, an image so small and perfect that it ‘might be supposed to be the work of some Lilliputian artist’: the world’s first photographic negative. This captivating book traces the lives of two very different men in the 1830s, both racing to be the first to solve one of the world’s oldest problems: how to capture an image and keep it for ever. On the one hand there is Henry Fox Talbot: a quiet, solitary gentleman-amateur tinkering away on his farm in the English countryside. On the other Louis Daguerre, a flamboyant, charismatic French showman in search of fame and fortune. Only one question remains: who will get there first?

Werfen Sie zusammen mit einem Weltklasse-Profi einen Blick hinter die Kulissen und erfahren Sie, wie eindrucksvolle Aufnahmen von der Konzeption bis zur Aufnahme entstehen. Schöpfen Sie die einzigartigen Qualitäten sämtlicher Lichtarten aus – ein regnerischer, grauer Morgen kann mit dem richtigen Ansatz genauso ausdrucksstark sein wie ein goldener Sonnenuntergang. Verbessern Sie Ihre Fähigkeiten und schärfen Sie Ihr Verständnis, um schnell und effektiv mit der richtigen Technik auf den richtigen Licht-Typ zu reagieren. Genießen Sie Seite für Seite voller inspirierender Bilder und Illustrationen – alle untermalt mit praktischen und technischen Informationen sowie professionellen Ratschlägen. Professionelle Fotografen jagen ständig nach Licht, warten, helfen nach und nehmen Bilder auf – zuweilen bis zur Besessenheit. Michael Freeman arbeitet schon seit vier Jahrzehnten mit Licht und zeigt hier einen einfachen, aber praktischen Ansatz, das wichtigste Gut der Fotografie zu interpretieren, darauf zu reagieren und es aufzunehmen. Diese praktischen Ratschläge teilen sich in drei Abschnitte: Warten, Jagen und Nachhelfen. Üben Sie sich zunächst in der Kunst der Geduld und erkennen Sie den unermesslichen Wert, Licht vorhersehen und damit planen zu können, obwohl es den Horizont noch nicht erreicht hat. Lernen Sie, wie Sie flüchtigen, vergänglichen Lichtsituationen begegnen und sie beherrschen, schnell denken und schnell reagieren. Nutzen Sie schließlich die Werkzeuge, die Ihnen zur Verfügung stehen, um das vorhandene Licht zu verstärken und zu manipulieren – von den Optionen vor Ort bis hin zu den technischen Mitteln der Nachbearbeitung. Mit dieser Methode arbeiten Sie wie ein Profi – Sie finden sich in allen Lichtsituationen zurecht, setzen sie um und kennen sich aus –, um die eine Aufnahme in den Kasten zu bekommen. Aus dem Inhalt: • Weiches Sonnenlicht • Seitenlicht • Reflektiertes Licht • Gegenlicht • Goldene Stunde • Lichter der Stadt • Spot • Blendenflecke • Schlagschatten-Licht • Flutlicht • Aufhelllicht • Umhüllendes Licht • Licht mit unvollständigem Spektrum • Zeitraffer-Licht • u.v.m.

In almost all photography it’s the quality of light that makes or breaks the shot. For professional photographers, chasing the light, waiting for it, sometimes helping it, and finally capturing it is a constant preoccupation — and for some an obsession. Drawing on four decades of doing just this, Michael Freeman takes a simple but practical approach to reacting to, and capturing photography’s most important commodity. There are just three sections titled Waiting, Chasing, and Helping: Waiting explains the kinds of lighting that photographers can anticipate and plan for, while Chasing explores the transient, serendipitous light that photographers have to work quickly to exploit. Helping, the final and most technical section, focuses on the skills and techniques for enhancing, reducing, or otherwise controlling light, covering everything from in-the-field shooting choices to technical transformations to post-production.

As one of the great plein air painters of his generation, Paul preferred to be outdoors using the sun to light his subjects. His years of experience in capturing that natural light are offered here in Capturing Light in Oils.
