Second Edition Of Scott Hargis’s Lighting Interiors Coming In November

October 28th, 2013

LInteriors2ndEditionScott has got the text for the second edition of Lighting Interiors to me, and my son and I are working hard on editing, proofing and laying out the new edition. I’m very pleased with how this new edition is turning out!

The second edition will have:

  • Four completely new chapters.
  • Several of the first edition chapters be significantly updated.
  • It will have a completely new layout designed to work better than the existing layout on tablets. Tablets came on the market just a few months before we launched Lighting Interiors back in 2010.
  • Of course the second edition will still be in PDF format so that it can be read on any type of device… laptops, desktops, tablets and even phones if you have good eyes.

As with all the e-books we sell here here on PFRE, everyone that has ever purchased a copy of Lighting Interiors will get a copy of the second edition at no cost.

The success and world wide popularity of Lighting Interiors has been amazing this new edition with new content, and a complete redesign for tablets takes it even farther by adding Scott’s latest thinking and approaches to lighting interiors with small flash. I think you will like it! I can’t predict the exact release date, but I believe it will be sometime in November.

  • Very generous of you to offer the 2nd edition gratis, Larry, for those of us who’ve purchased the first! Can’t wait!

  • Can’t wait to see the updates and changes. Free updates for life has got to be the best deal in photographic education available anywhere!!!

  • Nice! 🙂

  • Essential interiors book!!!

  • Thanks so much for all that you do

  • I’ve been on the fence about purchasing this for weeks. I guess it can wait until November.

  • Scott’s guide is great, and so is the video series. Both are well worth the small investment, especially when starting out.

    I’m also looking forward to Mike Kelley’s upcoming DVD tutorial for architectural photography. No idea when it will be out, but I’m sure Larry will on top of that announcement as well. 🙂

  • Practicing the concepts in this book allowed me to charge more money and really made my business take off. Looking forward the the next edition.

  • I look forward to the update. Have just finished rereading my first edition.

  • Dam, I just bought the first one a few week ago. Guess I’ll be getting that one too. Where can I find the video series? I’m new to this forum.

  • I purchased both the first edition and the video and found both very helpful. Thanks for providing the 2nd edition for free – Can’t wait to get it!

  • @carmine – You can get Scott’s video series here: http://lightingforrealestatephotography.com/

  • Scott, , , just barely absorbed version I , , , thanks for more homework! 🙂

  • I’ve already bought the first edition. How can I download the second edition in November?

  • @Silvio – All previous buyers of the e-book will receive a new download link via the email they use to purchase the book.

  • First book was great. Easy read, easy to understand and easy to learn from. Look forward to the update.

    What about his video series….anything happening there?

  • Hey
    Glad i purchased the first one ,getting ready here in chicago for spring realestate photography interiors.
    P.S.Can you really photograph interiors, a house in one Hour.

  • @tyrone – How long it takes to photograph a home depends on the size and of course the number of photos you are committed to supply. Yes, it’s possible to shoot a small home and photograph all the important spaces. The general rule of thumb that Scott uses for real estate shoots is 6 min/photo…

  • @Tyrone – You can shoot a house in an hour, but not at first. It takes time to train yourself to identify the best angles of a room and how to position your flashes. Overcoming crowded rooms and dark painted walls always slows me down. I average around 10 minutes/photo for furnished real estate and 6ish for vacant property. I have been keeping track out my in/out times on my internal work order so I can keep tabs on what it is really taking me to deliver. I am still learning a lot from each shoot and I also spend some extra time ‘working’ a shot if I come across a new challenge like a large stained glass window or other unique bits of architecture. I tell the clients and homeowners that shooting takes between 1.5 and 2 hours for the average home. That leaves me some cushion if the homeowner or realtor is planning to leave at a set time. Going over is sometimes not an option.

  • Surprised and very happy that the second edition is free to those of us who bought the first (thank you Scott ad Larry)! A rarity in any kind of educational literature.
    If you are on the fence about getting Scott’s book, just get it. It is/was well worth the money.
    Looks like I need to plunk the money down for the video series…

  • I purchased the first edition and the video. Both helped me a lot and is worth every single penny.
    I find it very generous to give away the 2nd edition gratis.
    Thanks Scott!
