Overview

A full-color, go-anywhere guide to Nikon's entire array of creative lighting possibilities

Nikon's Creative Lighting System is like having a low-cost, wireless, studio lighting system that's portable enough to fit into a camera bag. Although the possibilities are endless and exciting, setting up, synchronizing the equipment, and determining lighting ratios can be a bit overwhelming. Luckily, this Digital Field Guide has been completely updated to shed some light on the situation!

Beginning with the basic functions of the Nikon SB-900, the SB-800, and the SB-600, the author then goes on to demystify the complexities of using multiple speedlights, adjusting flash outputs, and setting up a wireless studio.

  • Clearly explains how to get the best results when using multiple speedlights
  • Includes examples and unique advice on how to light specific subjects, such as weddings, wildlife, portraits, product shots, and corporate locations
  • Covers other Creative Lighting System components, such as Nikon's wireless commander and macro speedlights

With this handy, on-the-go guide, you'll no longer be in the dark on Nikon's Creative Lighting System.

    More Than Just a Flash: Great guide to Nikon's Creative Lighting system

    Excellent guide to selecting, setting up and using Nikons extensive lineup of flashes. I found this book much better than the instruction books that came with the flash and camera. I have one other Nikon flash guide book and this one is much better.
