Flash is a necessary and immensely creative tool that dramatically increases the opportunities of any amateur photographer. However, many amateurs find flash intimidating, unsure of where to begin. Instead, they continue limiting themselves to shooting only available light. Understanding Flash Photography is a guide to off-camera flash, helping free photographers from “auto” to get the images they want when natural light isn’t enough. If you’ve been afraid to venture past natural light, here is the book that will finally help you explore the exciting possibilities of artificial light. Author Bryan Peterson starts by breaking down how flash works, then dispels the widely held myth that automatic “TTL” flash exposure is easier, explaining how to quickly master manual flash exposure to control the quality, shape, and direction of light. For the hundreds of thousands who found Understanding Exposure an exciting tool in moving past “auto” exposure in available light, Understanding Flash Photography is the essential companion to mastering the often challenging exposure puzzle.

The flash unit is a complex device and very valuable to the outdoor photographer. Whether you photograph the landscape or outdoor adventures, nature may not always provide the best light. Flash can be used in conjunction with the outdoor light that is available or it can be used as the only light source. You can brighten your subject, create striking images of motion, or use flash to make your subject pop. You might need flash in combination with the natural light or have a need to create light where there isn't any and this book covers how to do it all. This book shows you how to use the Nikon SB900 and Canon 580EXII, each covered in great detail. From the LCD to all the buttons, their purpose and function are explained. Charlie Borland shows you how to apply flash for specific results in both intensity and quality and even more valuable is how to create light that tells stories. Something that is important to outdoor and adventure photographers! If you have a flash to accompany your DSLR and overwhelmed by all the options, this eBook will set you on the right path.
