“Joey Lawrence is . . . the future of photography. Get used to it.” —David Hobby (Strobist)


Aspiring photographers are always looking for that edge, that fresh point of view to add drama to their images. Photographer Joey L. found his vision early, drawing critical acclaim as a brilliant commercial photographer with a distinctive technical expertise for lighting.
            In Photographing Shadow and Light, Joey lifts the curtain on his dramatic, creatively fearless approach to portraiture, sharing his personal philosophy and a behind-the-scenes look at 15 striking photo sessions—from personal projects shot in Africa, India, and Brooklyn to commercial shoots for 50 Cent, the Jonas Brothers, and Project Runway All Stars. Joey provides readers with a step-by-step description of how he visualized each shoot, formed meaningful connections with his subjects, and “built” his signature dramatic lighting effects—one light at a time.
            Featuring more than 85 stunning portraits, detailed lighting diagrams, and a foreword from industry icon David Hobby (aka Strobist), Photographing Shadow and Light shares the creative process behind one of today’s most exciting photography talents, providing serious amateurs and professionals a fresh perspective on creating compelling, professional quality portraits.
“Joey Lawrence is . . . the future of photography. Get used to it.” —David Hobby (Strobist)
Get inside the images of commercial and fine art portrait photographer Joey L. with this behind-the-lens guide to his fearless approach, creative vision, and signature lighting techniques.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Diese Schallplatte leiert... 21. Februar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich mag Joeys Arbeit und er ist ein interessanter Typ, wie er recht kalkuliert seine Leidenschaft auslebt. Ich kenne einige seiner Videos und Blogeinträge, in denen er Nützliches darüber preisgibt, wie er seine (Foto-)Reisen nach Indien oder Afrika selbst finanziert und logistisch, sowie praktisch alles angeht. Das ist wirklich sehr interessant!

Auf habe ich einige schlechte Rezensionen zu diesem Buch gelesen und mich trotzdem zum Kauf der Kindleversion entschieden. Zum Glück! Eigentlich kaufe ich keine illustrierten Bücher in digitaler Form, aber ich bin froh, nicht mehr als 15 Euro dafür ausgegeben zu haben und tote Bäume im Regal verstauben zu lassen.

David Hobby schreibt im Vorwort, dass er eigentlich nicht auf Joeys Alter eingehen möchte, was er dann aber dennoch macht. Aber selbst wenn er kein Wort darüber verloren hätte, wird das Thema noch unzählige Male von Joey selbst auf den Tisch gebracht. Ich habe das Buch noch nicht vollständig durchgelesen, aber bis zur Hälfte wiederholt sich alles immer wieder auf eine recht langweilige Art und Weise, dass es mir schwerfällt, weiterzulesen. Der Schreibstil ist eher monoton und abgeklärt und der Inhalt schwelt vor Selbstbeweihräucherung...

Bitte nicht falsch verstehen! Ich habe vollen Respekt für das, was Joey erreicht hat und ja, auch -oder besser- besonders, im Hinblick auf sein Alter. Aber der Buchtitel hat nunmal mit Photographie zu tun und nicht mit dem Guinnessbuch oder einem über Wunderkinder. Das ermüdet in der ständigen Wiederholung doch sehr.

Die Fotos in diesem Buch gibt es im Weltnetz überall verteilt zum Betrachten.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Aren't you fan? 13. Oktober 2014
I follow JoeL work for some time so the book was kind of summary and natural step up for Joe as well. You can find here his philosophy behind shoots, way how he organize work, prepares for a shoot, builds light or scene. It's nice reading, I can just recommend it.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A book for all photographers 12. Januar 2013
Von Clint - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I had a hard time deciding how to rate this book. While I'm not sure who the book's target audience was, it is fitting for all photographers who want expand their horizons or pros to relook at how they shoot. The more experienced will probably underrate the book while beginners might overate the book. Overall, the book is a good source for learning and provides a lot of insight.

Joey L.'s book is a concise documentary of some of his work. The best of the book is the many photos you get of Joey L.'s work (5 stars). His description of styles and techniques (2 stars) are reminiscent of many photographers learning to light and photograph people. But he does get into some advanced lighting. His understanding of building rapport with his subjects is unusual for young photographers - he gets it! And the book could almost be a marketing tool for Profoto Pro 7b battery pack , Profoto flash heads, and Elinchrome's Rotalux Softbox Octa but does demonstrate the flexibly of this equipment.

The book is not the type of book that is a compelling read but one you can read and come back to later. I had to take a second look at much of the book before I really deciphered that there was really large amount information is in the book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Review 11. Dezember 2012
Von Derek - Veröffentlicht auf
3 1/2 stars

I have been following JoeyL for a long time now. The book was good but I was a little upset by all the recycled material. A lot of the information can be found on his DVDs and even in his blog.

If you haven't seen any of his DVDs then this book will be great for you!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Avoid the Kindle version - missing content 30. Dezember 2012
Von btrenkel - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Well, years after the Kindle came out (used the iPad version in this case to have color). You would think publishers have figured out that just pushing a digital file with text and photos through some piece of software doesn't create a quality experience.

- text breaks and picture alignment - horrible
- photos seem to have gone completely missing from the 2nd half of the book. The last photo is at 39% - after that. Nothing

I'm happy to try the paper version - but stay away from the Kindle one. Useless, unless fixed.

4.0 von 5 Sternen It's all about ME! 12. Dezember 2012
Von Brent A. Thale - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
"Photographing Shadow and Light" is a difficult book to like. It's filled with expertly lit, well-directed commercial and fine art pictures, with the photographer's commentary on equipment used, camera settings, and his recollections of interacting with the subject during the shoot. However, I can't get past my perception of the author's arrogance and self-centered attitude that his writing style brings across. So many "I", "Me", and "My" words makes it seem like the author is more interested in celebrating his own greatness than in communicating useful information. For example, on page 35, there are 15 occurrences of "I" and "My" in one paragraph! No "I" in "team", ring a bell?

Anyway, the book covers a number of the author's shoots, many of which use surprisingly simple lighting involving an assistant holding a giant octobox, underexposing the ambient light, and using the sun as a rim light. Most of the photos are quite nice, ranging from celebrities to aboriginal people to unknown musical groups. There is even a small cosplay section, although from my point of view the cosplay shots were some of the weaker ones in the book.

The author is firmly in the "Make the shot" school of photography (as opposed to just taking a shot), and his work shows it with clean frames and appealing compositions. I'm all for that in most cases, but there is a line that can be crossed there, and I didn't care for the dust jacket shot of the two native tribesmen in traditional dress acting as the author's lightstands, it just seems like a sad caricature of how the people being photographed so lovingly don't really exist anymore.

I still give the book 4 stars based on the sheer quality of the work done, very nice pictures indeed.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Decent coffee table book 3. Oktober 2013
Von Alan Shi - Veröffentlicht auf
Any follower of the Strobist blog will have a hard time not picking up this book after reading the stunning endorsement from David Hobby in the foreword. There's no question that Joey L's images are masterfully crafted, and the print quality of this book really brings the pictures to life. Many images consume an entire page, which makes this a nice coffee table book despite the amount of text. Any fan of Joey's will certainly appreciate that.

When it comes to the text, it's important to realize that this isn't really an instructional book. Sure, there are lighting setups described (with diagrams), as well as EXIF data revealed for many shots, but it's presented pretty casually--more in the style of "here's how it happened" than "if you want to do X, here's what you need to do". You won't find technical information about lighting (like flash vs ambient exposure, metering, etc), so those unfamiliar with these topics should look elsewhere.

A lot of what is instructional is fairly basic and even repetitive. Many images in the book are simple, short-lit portraits from an octabox to one side and aimed down at 45-degrees (a setup described over and over again in the book), and an underexposed background. There's clearly a lot more subtlety in these images that make it successful than the fairly mundane details of where the lights are.

I'd say for anyone that's familiar with lighting techniques, you'll learn nothing new, except perhaps to be reminded how great portraits can be created with simple lighting setups, done well.

Each image comes with a story behind the shot, detailed some of these technical aspects as well as tidbits about the location or subject, so you get a feel for what was going on. In many ways, it kind of feels like a diary/blog more than an instructional tool. The beginning of the book might even feel like a bit of a kind of autobiography of the photographic aspects of Joey's career to date.

Overall, this was a decent book with great images, and if you're a fan of Joey's work, it's certainly worth a read. For those seeking instruction, this will come as a bit of a disappointment, so just know what you are and aren't getting with this book.
