Lighting 101 To Go
Over the years Lighting 101 had been ported to a portable document format (PDF) in several different languages. But those documents were from the version originale, which was circa 2006. In 2013 Lighting 101 was completely revised, top to bottom, to be more in-depth with more updated info and featuring the photographic work of Strobist's readers.
Now the most current version has been ported to PDF, for your offline viewing pleasure.
Thanks to efforts of Strobist reader Michael Turcotte (and if this PDF helps you, please do shoot him a 'thanks') the new version has now been port-i-fied. As a PDF it is viewable on darn-near anything, including of course on your offline computer. You can even print it out if you want.
The download is ~2.7mb, and is hosted on Google Drive.
PLEASE NOTE: There is no need to request permission to share the document. It is public. So you can just link to there (as I have) or to this page if you feel the context would help. Thanks!
If you are interested in creating other-language versions of the revised L101 in PDF format, feel free to do so and to shoot me a link to them via Twitter. I'll host them somewhere that can bear the bandwidth, and then add the link to this page.
You are more than welcome to translate L101 into other languages as long as you do not alter the original content, nor include links to any other sites. I will, of course, credit translators who will henceforth have the undying thanks of foreign readers.
Please note that Lighting 101 is the only module on the site for which PDF publication is permitted.
