November CoverOn The Cover
This month we’re shining a spotlight on lighting tools and techniques. We delve into LED lights, speedlights, macro ringlights, lighting accessories, and more. Lighting aside, Jon Canfield explores Adobe’s Lightroom 3 to see if it really is worth the upgrade. We also test HiTi’s PocketStudio printer. Finally, Chuck Gloman was able to create this very striking cover image by using shallow depth of field and autumnal light. To learn more about shooting fall portraits outdoors, read his article on page 142.
