Also a lot of shops that sell Lowel products either have a few
copies lying around or can easily get them!

Ross Lowell's Matters of Light and Depth

Just received my copy in the mail. So far it seems to be ok. I'll give an Overall review after I've read it a couple times.

I'm not sure if I really like this book....it is written with too many metaphors. I got this book to try and learn something but it doesn't seem to cover lighting in a way that I can learn it. It is like the author is trying more to show the reader how clever he can describe stuff rather than writing to help someone learn lighting. Maybe some may find it more interesting written this way or something but I don't.
Just my opinion of course.

I think the point of this book is to teach more of the artistic side to lighting, as opposed to the technical or practical/money-making side of things. It's more theory than how-to.

I agree Glenn, I have actually read this book again and it is starting to make more sense to me now. You can tell that the author really loves the craft of lighting. He speaks about lighting like a poet speaks about a beautiful girl.
