As an introductory read on lighting in photos, this book is a good buy. However there are some aspects of the book that keep it from being "5-stars" in my opinion.

The book is written in a casual tone, which is much appreciated and makes the book accessible to photographers of all levels. There is a decent amount of information on DIY (do-it-yourself) lighting, and the author encourages the idea of doing things yourself/cheaply before dropping some serious cash on "real" equipment.

The book briefly touches upon various aspects of lighting in different types of photography (landscape, portraits, etc). There are some good examples of portrait lighting (rembrandt, broad, etc) however the examples are just the photos themselves. I wish the author would have backed up from the scene, and showed the reader the actual set up of the lights. He does do this sometimes, but I personally wish it was more often. It's great to see "before and after" pictures, and in the narrative he tells you what he changed to get the "after" shot, but it could have been much easier to digest/visualize with a picture of the "before and after" set up as well.

A glossary is included and is pretty good if you are unfamiliar with basic photography terms.

As a side note, I found my copy (purchased from Amazon directly) had a lot of weird printing errors (missing pages, missing pictures, etc).

As an introductory read in lighting, I would recommend this book. However, if you have an interest in lighting , you may find this book will leave you wanting more (more in depth explanations, more in depth lighting diagrams, etc).

This book feels like a digest of Light-Science & Magic (Paperback). If you've read LS&M and experimented with theory and techniques presented in it, Focus on Lighting Photos will not be as exciting. However, if you haven't read (or do not intend to read or found) LS&M (too technical for your taste/needs) or do not want to learn from the Flickr group dedicated to LS&M, this is a good book to get an introduction to lighting (including off-camera lighting with a flash or two or more). This book will quickly put one on track to better lighting quickly. It gives one confidence that good pictures can be made with gear (that includes a camera with flash) one already has. The book has good number of pictures, pictures of setups used to shoot those pictures, and explanation on how each picture was made. Covers portrait, landscape, still life, etc. Focus on Lighting Photos also has few useful DIY and common sense tricks to better lighting/pictures.

This was a textbook for my intro. photo class and it was very helpful, providing clear illustrations and examples, and the layout was great-text broken up with pictures, diagrams, etc. for visual interest and better learning experience.

This is a wonderful book. I love the little side notes. I read magazines,but this book is full of the info I need. I had many questions about lighting and this is the book for me. It is full of answers and examples.light and shadows,split lightingportrait lighting, even glat metal, as i like to take pics of very old things like hand held wood saws.

Great book

Haven't read it yet, but paging through, It looks very good.

The narrative of the book is annoying. The author wants to sound cool and connected with the reader, but tries way too hard. The advice on hard light and soft light is repeated to death throughout the book. The book doesn't encourage the reader to try the examples, the diagrams are poor and the solutions given are very simplistic.
This is a great book for beginners and advanced beginners. There was useful information on various lighting situations and great DIY tips for light modifiers. The book was easy to read, i.e. not a technical snoozefest. I recommend this book for those wanting to venture into the world of lighting and light modification.
