Generally a good to very-good book, but let down by the fact the author makes continuous references to the images in the book as he edits them, but the book does not come with a CD of the images, nor are they available for download.

With the small size and poor print quality of the images in the book, it is sometimes difficult to see what is happening, whereas if the images were supplied you would be able to "follow-along".

So, while a good book, one you'll be disappointed with so I cannot in all honesty recommend it to you.
I like to go through a book and follow the techniques exactly. Then I go back and try with my own photos. Only problem here is that not all the photo's in the book are available for download. This is the main reason I give this book 1 star. I tried to search the internet for similar images just like the ones in the book, but got frustrated after a couple of hours. Now my book just sits on the shelf. I tried emailing the publisher and the website where the images are at. No one has replied to me.
This is a great book for those who have some experiance in photoshop & want to sharpen your skills. I picked up on some stuff I haden't gotten from school when I got my BA at art school. A must have for Photoshopers.
Lighting, like say the rays from the sun coming through a dark cloud, can be the most dramatic part of a photograph. But what if the sun isn't cooperating? Photoshop can take an ordinary photograph and make it into an outstanding picture.

Photoshop has literally changed the way professional photography is done. Now half the work, perhaps more, is done at the computer. When a particular type of image is sought, the basic source picture can be modified in ways that only a short time ago were unimaginable. In this book Barry Huggins has concentrated on using lighting techniques possible with Photoshop to add highlights, shadows, heat waves, reflections, dust, fire and more to literally create an image that might be impossible to generate any other way.

In each case the starting image is modified, and the detailed steps necessary are done one step at a time to produce the modified picture. Mr. Huggins shows how to do things with Photoshop that I couldn't even have imagined.
First off, if you are a seasoned PS user who understands light and color theory and color correction then you are probably not going to get much out of this book. If however, you are new to PS or still in the long learning process than you most likely will benefit from this book. It covers a wide range of lighting techniques that can be used to create just about any effect you need to.

There are two cons to this book however. The first being that a few of the effects could have been done better. For example; In one image the smoke and steam look like they were in fact painted into the image instead of being very light and wispy. But overall the effects are very well done and clearly explained. This leads us to con number two...the explanations. Yes I said they are clear. But read on.

The explanations, though clearly written, are sans digital file. I would have gladly paid another $5-$10 for the book if they had included a CD with all the images used in the examples. On the one hand the files are available at [...] but they do not even mention this in the book. But then the problem there is not all of the files are available for download. Most of them are but not all of them. To make matters worse they are low res images with a copyright mark in the middle of the image. So I find the publishers process very confusing.

At any rate this is still a good book for any PS user looking to push their skills further.
I can not stress how much this book has helped me. The lighting effects in here are great and they help to open your eyes to a world where you may have been blind. After reading this book, all the subtle little lighting things that people do will make so much more sense.

The problem with this book lies also in what makes it good. Taking a page from Bert Monroy's "If you're going to write a photoshop book, do this" philosophy, Barry Huggins does not include samples to go along with his step by step examples. Why? because he wants you to apply this to your OWN work. So of course if you take some of the things in this book they could look different, or cheezy, or anything else. You just have to tweak it till you get it right.

This isn't a student book, a beginner book, or a basic how to book. Unless you're an experienced photoshop user, you may find it frustrating in some aspects.

For you, and you know who you are, this book is worth it.
Looking at the images in this book is akin to watching a bad magician at work: the secret "moves" are anything but. Some of the effects like fire and smoke are obviously fake. Others, like casting shadows from blinds and plants are less so, but still "feel" wrong in the way the shadows often have the wrong density and falloff, or fail to follow the curves and shapes of foreground objects.

If you're serious about your photography, I'd advise getting a good book on lighting by someone like Barrister, and learn to light for real. Many of the "effects" presented in the book can be done in seconds with some rudimentary equipment and a little practice.... or you can spend hours in PS "perfecting" an image that, like the magician's tricks, fools no one but himself.
