100% Reliable Flash Photography
Back in the ‘bad old days’ when I was shooting seriously for stock agencies I had to learn to master flash photography not only for studio shots but also for outdoor and location portraiture. I learned the art of flash photography by reading books and mostly by practice, practice, practice… and then more practice (did I say I had to practice a lot?). I sure could have used a good resource that simplified the complex technical aspects of flash photography — if only to save processing costs on hundreds of rolls of film!
Fast forward to today and you can find all sorts of resources on the web about flash photography and specifically how to use your Nikon or Canon flashes to create professionally lit portraits anywhere. The problem is that I have not found one resource that covers everything you need to know from lighting theory to practical lighting set-ups in an easy to understand matter, until now. I really like Ed Verosky’s new e-Book 100% Reliable Flash Photography – How to Get Amazing Light in Any Situation. I especially appreciated Ed’s Standardization Principle where you get proven formulas to get results in any lighting situation. If you need to use flash in your photography (editorial, portrait, wedding, or sports photography) then I suggest you pick up Ed’s e-Book ($9.95) . I am now using some of his 15 proven lighting techniques to help me get back up to speed with flash photography – even old dogs can learn new tricks!
