Top Customer Reviews
I also like that Neil shows people how to use a standard flash and that this is all that is needed. He does not rely or promote all the gimmicks like ring flash and the Gary Fong creations that either work poorly, add complexity, or as with Fong's dongs, waste 75% of the light output of the flash.
This is not a panacea and the photographer needs to take the information and then use it with practice in the field. I recommend taking a friend with a white top to a hotel lobby and shooting or outdoors at night and learn the limitations of your equipment and which settings provide the best results and equally important, the most consistent results.
Regardless of whether you plan to photograph weddings for a living or simply photograph a friend's birthday party or some other event this book will greatly improve your results and reduce the stress level when you have more confidence that you can achieve results worth sharing.
I received this book in order to review.
I've been following Neil for some time on his Tangent site. He is a master of on-camera flash not to say he isn't as masterful with strobes and constant light.
My interest in lighting is using small flash off camera but I ran into circumstances that using off camera flash wasn't practical, hence the purchase of this publication.
In just the few chapters I've read I see an immense improvement in photographs/portraits taken of my family so I can only imagine the improvement as I continue with the book and practicing.
