The author presents his techniques and the reasons behind why he used particular settings in a logical and easy to understand format. The book is a worthwhile read for beginning to intermediate photographers. My biggest complaint is with the layout of the Nook version of this book. All of the sample photos are tiny (size of a postage stamp), which is a big drawback on a photography book with ample photos. I have seen this on other Nook photography books as well and I really hope the publishers address it. Even adding the ability to tap an image to enlarge (especially on a Nook HD+) would be greatly appreciated.

I found this to be perhaps the best book in understanding off camera flash use in all my experience!

This book is worth purchasing. It gives you detailed info about lighting scenarios without being overwhelming. It is a quick and easy read that I would easily reccomend to anyone who is trying to familiarize themselves with flash photography.

The book itself is very good but unfortunately the digital version seems to have a poor quality versions of the photographs that you can just tell what the photograph is depicting: all the finer details are lost due to the compression. I can't say for sure if this affects only the sample of the book or the whole book but I'm not going to drop 15 dollars to find out. Barnes & Nobles, please fix this!

This book is about learning how to use your speedlite to its fullest to create great looking portraits. He covers what options there are for speedlite modifiers, what camera settings and what flash settings to use and different lighting techniques. He then gives a variety of example situations and how to achieve the lighting you want. A good book to get you comfortable with your speedlite.
