I've been getting a number of friend requests from models who are under 18 years of age. I'd love to have you on my friends list, but I need a note from one of your parents first. It's my policy. Thanks for understanding.

Here are some reviews on the new book (not the Back to Basics one!):
NEW DIGITAL LIGHTING BOOK
GETS RAVES FROM SHOOTSMARTER UNIVERSITY
Photographer, author and good friend of ShootSmarter.com Stephen Dantzig has just released his third book titled "Softbox Lighting Techniques for Professional Photographers" and is right on target if you need some help with portrait lighting setup and control.
This book is chocked full of great lighting tips, tricks and diagrams for beginner to intermediate pros & emerging pros. It also covers many alternative uses for creating great looking portraits using a Softbox which we think is vital to digital photography.
Professionals and non-pros alike will all find something of use in Steve's new book and we think the info on "Combining Light Sources" in chapter 4 (page 72) is some of the best we've seen on this topic. To order signed copies of the first printing of this "must read" book, please visit Steve's website at www.dantzigphotography.com
or if you don't need a signed copy and want to save a few bucks you can order it directly from www.Amazon.com
This book is absolutely terrific! - Will Crockett
Stephen Dantzig's Softbox Lighting Techniques will make a valuable addition to any working pro's technical library. Of key interest are the sections on how varying surfaces and size, as well as reflectivity of the individual softboxes or their components can drastically affect the quality and volume of the light. Dantzig has done his research and used excellent photographs to illustrate his points.
