Understanding Light eBook


TPE for Desktop is changing. On 2 September 2014, the Adobe AIR-based version of TPE for Desktop will be end-of-life and will be replaced by a new browser-based web app.

We are working with Bruce Percy to produce an updated 2nd Edition of Understanding Light, which will cover the new app in detail. We expect the updated eBook to be complete by end August 2014.

We will be offering a free update to the second edition to all existing customers who have previously purchased the book.

If you purchase Understanding Light between now and when the update appears, you will receive the 1st edition at the time of purchase and a free update to the 2nd edition when it is released.

eBooks by Bruce Percy

Co-authored with renowned Scottish photographer Bruce Percy, Understanding Light discusses both the practical use of TPE to plan and execute landscape photographs and the theory of natural light of the sun and moon.

With examples from locations around the world, including Bolivia, Iceland, Patagonia and Scotland, Bruce Percy discusses how TPE helps the photographer plan to maximize shooting opportunities on the ground.

“Rather than a point-by-point ‘how to’ manual, the book explores at a high level some of the science behind natural light, and illustrates key points with a number of case studies where I explain the thinking and planning behind some of my images.”

The eBook covers the free Desktop version of TPE, but the principles are equally applicable to all versions of the app.

In addition to Understanding Light, Bruce has a wide variety of other eBooks available, covering technique, locations and his personal philosophy of photography – well worth investigating.
