As a teacher of photographic lighting, here is a book that I can highly recommend on photographic lighting. Lighting: Science & Magic is an excellent resource for those learning the fundamentals of lighting. This book is not packed with great shots by great photographers, but instead is an excellent resource for understanding lighting and the physics behind it.
The authors dig deep into looking at light angles, reflections (would you believe there are different types of reflections) and contrast, polarization, lighting styles and much more. A definite must read if you are looking for a thorough understanding of lighting and how it works for your photography.
