Thanks for weighing in, Calvin. I absolutely agree, Marc. Excellent book. This list just became my Christmas list! Great stuff and great program. Thanks everyone for the great suggestions. I could have worked on this one for a month and not gotten to all of the really great books available. It includes an ebook, online quizzes to test your knowledge, and plenty of pictures as examples. This affordable set has made learning photography so easy.

Related posts: No related posts. Donald Giannatti. Thanks so much for including my book on the list. Some wonderful company here. Jeffrey Guyer. Thank you. Check your gmail. URL says 16 books, Rolliflex image says 10, and article title says 15… Anyways good list! Only thing I would say is missing is Hotshoe Diaries. I guess Jeff started out with 10 and did the graphics but then could not stop himself….
Marc Garrido. A good sharing and got some tips as well. That is why I searched for interesting tips on flash photography in the first place.
Regards, Karla. Jump to the article on the black foamie thing in the meantime. It will explain how to get photos without a hard flash shadow when working indoors with an on-camera flash. Having shot a lot with just the pop-up flash and it sounds like something Karla was going through, I came across a Pop-up bounce which which works great indoors and packs completely flat, they make it for Nikon, Canon and Sony DSLR cameras and is really durable.
I can just throw it in my pocket and pop it on the camera with ease. Worth a look. First off, I love your work. I think you should do more podcast, I think it would save you alot of time and and you have a great voice. I like them both alot while recognizing my frustrations with each. I would love to read more about why you primarily shoot Nikon now and what are some of your biggest frustrations with the 1d Mark III?
I try to keep the material on this site as system-agnostic as possible, so I never really posted any Nikon vs Canon comparisons. But here is a discussion on why I switched my dominant system to Nikon. I still keep a small Canon system, mainly for the workshops and to remain familiar with the Canon flash system.

I found your explanation of flash photography very interesting. Over the years I have dabbled with light mainly in the black and white field and film. I had a lot of problems on Christmas night. I am just getting started to digital photography and had bought a Nikon D to start with.
Would you recommend a non-Nikon flash that will do a decent job for an average amateur photographer like me that will not cost an arm and a leg? I would suggest getting one of the top Nikon speedlights for specific reasons , even if they seem expensive compared to the camera. Thanks for having your e-book available through barnes and noble. Just bought it on my nook color after spending an hour pouring over your website in a coffee shop! This is really going to belp me i think :. I consider myself a professional photographer but at times, on different discussion boards I feel talked down to and I question my abilities.
Neil, great explanation. I enjoy all of your creative posts and thanks for coming to AD in Cincinnati earlier this month. Thank you very much for taking the time to pass on this knowledge! This is an invaluable resource for anyone starting to learn flash photography. I had my NikonSB delivered today and it is my first flash gun. Looking around the internet for tutorials I happen to come across your website. I intend to read all your articles and hopefully overcome my fear of using flash.

I am a beginner and your website is very informative indeed. Dankie vir al die inspirasie. Dankie vir jou alles wat jy deel. The writeups are so simple, informative which has helped a lot of us to understand what photography is all about. In fact reading you post has started giving me some sense on what those controls are on my camera. Reading the comments, I assume it may not be a problem sharing pic with you and asking some suggestions.
I have been another victim of the lack of knowledge about proper flash use for several years. Unhappy with the inconsistency of my photography. Unable to figure out what I was doing wrong, and worst yet, not having any ideas on how to improve it.
