Speedlights & Speedlites: Creative Flash Photography at the Speed of Light based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
If you are a photographer and have not learned the basics of lighting and the advantages of FLASHES i.e. Speedlights:Speedlites then this book should be your next purchase. Clear information and great examples on how to use the FLASH correctly. Easy to understand if you have basic lighting knowledge, also if you are a videographer then this book works as well.
If you want to learn about small strobes, and if you are a "visual" learner, then this is the book for you. "Speedlights & Speedlites" has some very cool features, first there are only two chapters in the book, chapter one is "One Light" (25 one light setups) and chapter two is (you may have already guessed) "Two Lights" (20 two light setups), each image is accompanied with the "inspiration, how's, and whys" of the shot and a complete lighting diagram. To make it as simple as possible to follow along the book is even color coded (Nikon - purple, Canon - green) so you can quickly and easily determine if the discussion is about a Nikon Speedlight or a Canon Speedlite. Sandwiched in between each of the images are one and two page educational segments that start with the fundamentals of flash, inverse square law, mastering distance, characteristics of light, comprehending the direction of bounce flash, and so much more. The authors also cover mixing speedlights with studio strobes. This book is for all levels of photographers and the images cover just about anything you might ever want to photograph, still life, portraiture, corporate, commercial, architectural, and sports. We learn to talk by listening to others, we learn to walk by watching others, and "Speedlights & Speedlites" is a great educational opportunity for those who want to "walk & talk" small strobes.
