Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Barry Staver and his cameras are the ultimate storytellers. Having worked on hundreds of stories with him, I know. As with all difficult things, when photography is done correctly, it looks easy. It isn’t. Barry Staver’s work looks effortless. It isn’t. His photographs work because of the level of his professionalism, his sensitivity, his unobtrusiveness, his humor, and a great deal of thought. A good story never really ends. And a good photograph lasts forever. Barry’s work is proof of that."  —MC Marden, photography editor, People magazine

"[This book] covers speedlights, exposure, flash basics, adding off-camera lights, mixing in ambient light, adding light modifiers, and the equipment used." —www.BookNews.com
