Sometimes photographers have to shoot in less than ideal lighting situations. Maybe the wedding is mid-day in the middle of a field, or perhaps the event is in a florescent-lit room. These scenarios can be particularly intimidating for beginning photographers who don’t know how to handle the many undesirable lighting situations they may encounter.
In Shooting in Sh*tty Light: The Top Ten Worst Photography Lighting Situations and How to Conquer Them, professional photographers Lindsay Adler and Erik Valind cover the top ten worst lighting situations and provide a variety of solutions for each. They explain which solutions are most practical and why one option might be preferable over another, examining such problems as extremely low lighting when no flash is allowed, strong backlight, and the light on an overcast day.
Unlike other books that focus on natural light or lighting in general, this book addresses a very real need of beginning photographers, answering the question, “What do I do when the lighting is terrible?” Lindsay and Erik candidly show you the tools at your disposal, demonstrating the techniques essential to getting the job done with minimal fuss.

Great book! Lots of good information!
The book had a lot of great tips on how to shoot in any lighting situation. I was able to take what I learned and put it to use immediately. There is also a great section in the back where it tells you what equipment was used which I found very helpful as well.
Half way through... And so helpful! Textures are awesome too! Thanks Lindsay!
Shooting in Sh*tty light is one of the best books that I've ever read about lighting. The book gives you so many great 'Takeaway Actions.' Linsday is one of my favorite photographers on Kelby Training. She even signed the book!!
