About the Author:

Author Ross Lowell is a professional cinematographer, still photographer, and occasional director and producer. Of the hundreds of documentaries, short films, and TV commercials that he has shot, directed, and produced, many have earned special recognition: an Academy Award, several addtional Academy Award nominations, Golden Eagle Awards, Emmy Awards, and Art Director's Club Awards, among others.

Ross has taught lighting at New York University and given lighting seminars and workshops for both students and professionals in the United States and abroad. In his spare time, he is a woodworker, writer, and inventor. His patented location lighting systems, for which he has received an Academy Award Technical/Scientific Certificate and The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers' John Grierson Gold Medal, have been kept in the shadows throughout Matters of Light & Depth.

Review:

Ross Lowell has spent his life learning and teaching about light . . . (This book) should be owned by everyone who has any kind of camera . . . The reward for reading just a few chapters . . . will surely be better pictures . . .Mr. Lowell s writing . . . has a lyrical and spiritual dimension that is inspiring . . . John Durniak, Valuable Lessons from a Master of Light, --The New York Times

I am still citing Ross Lowell as the sensitive character who knew what light and movement were all about. This book confirms it. --Peter Jennings, anchorman, ABC News

As a teacher, I particularly value several chapters, such as Lighting by Numbers, In Broad Daylight, Dynamic Lighting of Static Subjects, Shedding Light, and Lights-On Lessons. These sections are teeming with the kind of applied wisdom that students are starving for. I enjoyed reading it; better yet, I learned a lot from it. --Charles Merzbacher, professor, New York University, Dept. of Film & TV
