Hi there, I am looking for a book that explains principles of lighting. I am not looking for tutorials on lighting software techniques, but rather just understanding how lighting works. Eg- how a scene would look if it were lit in different situations. I figure if I have a good understanding of lighting, then my drawings/ illustrations will be much more realistic.

While there are lots of great books on the topic of lighting, what best helped me understand lighting was understanding what light actually is. Might get a bit heavy for you, but it's all just algebra really, and well worth your time:
