Tom McDonough, cinematographer and author, "Light Years"
Ross has squeezed
a lifetime of lighting experience and insight into one inspiring
volume. While it focuses on the inexperienced reader, it also helps
those of us who have been lighting for decades to understand why
we do it the way we do it.
Gill McDowell, lighting director/gaffer
I am still citing
Ross Lowell as the sensitive character who knew what light and movement
were all about. This book confirms it.
has spent his life learning and teaching about light...[This book]
should be owned by everyone who has any kind of camera. The reward
for reading just a few chapters...will surely be better pictures...Mr.
Lowell's writing has a lyrical and spiritual dimension that is inspiring...
John Durniak, "Valuable Lessons from a Master of Light,"
The New York Times
"As a teacher,
I particularly value several chapters, such as Lighting by Numbers,
In Broad Daylight, Dynamic Lighting of Static Subjects, Shedding
Light, and Lights-On Lessons. These sections are teeming with the
kind of applied wisdom that students are starving for. I enjoyed
reading it; better yet, I learned a lot from it."
