David Ziser’s Captured by the Light Tour
Jul capturfd, Candice rated it liked it Recommended to Candice by: Had a TON of great information and tips, but it’s definitely targeted at a certain type of wedding photographer: For someone just starting at wedding photography or who doe Had a TON of great information and tips, but it’s dwvid targeted at a certain type of wedding photographer: One great chapter in the book is about Ziser’s choices of lenses and when he uses them during the wedding events, which was very useful.
The chapters on composition are also excellent. All in all, it had a lot of good, useful information.
Some of it wasn’t useable advice for me simply because I don’t have the resources that Ziser or other established, busy wedding photographers do. But as someone who was needing a crash-course book on what to do for tne first wedding I ever photographed for a friend, not a clientit was useful Between Ziser’s book and Scott Kelby’s The Digital Photography Book, volumes 1 and 2I got a good enough technical background and tips to feel comfortable with shooting my friends’ wedding.

For a book published in thethe style of photography is somewhat outdated and while I agree that portraiture is important and needs to continue to find a place in wedding photography, no matter how photojournalistic the siser move toward, the images he chooses to share seem This isn’t to say the information he gives isn’t right, and that, particularly, his information on creating good light isn’t spot on, but he essentially has published a book that speaks to an audience that died out 10 years ago.
Time to move forward, guys.
Jun 14, Joe rated it liked it. This book is more for beginners and has a ton of information in it. I love David Ziser and his works but much of this book is outdated and demonstrates techniques used in the 80’s and 90’s.
However, the lighting diagrams and set-ups he uses are still useful for today’s photography.

Tons of examples on how to master studio-style wedding photography. Many useful tips and procedures to follow when working as a wedding photographer. As other users have mentioned, book techniques imply at least one assistant and is focused on formal wedding photography.
