    more from this reviewer

    I have bought over 100 photography "how to" books and I find this one to be among the best. It is very detailed and accurate.

    I have been looking for a reference book to help me improve my flash photography and this is the one. It covers all of the most recent Nikon CLS equipment and several of the older models. The book provides the detailed steps required to use each flash and shows you how to create a complete lighting system using your latest purchase and the older strobes you probably forgot about. Accurate and complete!
