You need to use your full name, it's one of the forum rules.

There are a number of books on the subject of lighting. You can find a list here: http://astore.amazon...ing=UTF8&node=1

This is another excellent book not in the previous list:
http://www.amazon.co...estor almendros

Also look at the work of great photographers and try to figure out the source of each light in the scene. It is a great exercise that will help you train your eye. Try to draw solid and simple objects (rocks, pieces of wood, metal etc) even if you don't know how to draw. It will train your eye to understand light and shadow and how it affects form, Do this every day!

Good luck!
