I used a film SLR years ago, but took the plunge with a Nikon 7100 a few months ago.
Before investing in a Nikon flash unit, I wanted to acquire knowledge, and some idea of how the pros use this powerful, but somewhat complicated tool.
This book did the trick. I appreciated the clear user friendly tips, the concise explanation of the principles behind the how-to suggestions.
The book provides enough of the background principles, without either talking down to a relative newbie, or using esoteric terms that only professional photographers would readily understand.
I heartily recommend this book! I will be on the lookout for other offerings by this same author. If you're on the fence, go ahead and buy it.
By the way I have the Kindle edition. For this book that was not a problem (although some photography books I have purchased have not translated well to the electronic reader format).
Yes most of this information is in the manual, but the flow of information, and the layout makes this a quick easy read. The very clear and concise writing style is easy to follow, not to mention the detailed images of the flash settings.
The writing is clear, down-to-earth, and very helpful in many ways. The author is a wedding and portrait photographer, and that is the main emphasis of the work she shows.
Don't buy it if you are not a "Nikonian." Canon shooters will need something else.
