Lindsay Adler’s Lighting Reference Guide | App Review

By Jules Ebe on July 16th 2013

Many of you may know of Lindsay Adler, an internationally known portrait and fashion photographer based in New York. Her editorials have appeared in dozens of publications and she travels extensively, teaching at conferences and seminars worldwide.

One of things we love most about her work is her versatile use of light. As many photographers become known for a certain ‘look’, Adler has created a portfolio that also features her range and lighting skills.


With that in mind, her new app for iPad and iPhone is like a compendium of lighting knowledge in the palm of your hand.

Why Photographers Would Love It

One word: Lighting

The studio lighting reference guide contains 9 different courses (6 currently available) ranging from light modifiers, to two-light set-ups, to high-key. It is a strobist’s dream.

Each course is themed, and contains ten different examples; complete with description, behind the scenes images, camera settings, diagrams, and full set-up details for each look.


You can also click through, save your favorites from any course, and pull up the samples at any time for reference or to show a client.

Download Free Lighting Guide App

The app and first course is free on iTunes. So check it out for yourself here: Lindsay Adler’s Lighting Reference Guide.

I’m sure you’ll end up grabbing the additional lighting guides at $0.99 each like I did.

Until Next Time . . .
