Book Description

April 25 2010

Automatic flash technology has revolutionized photography. Originally seen as just a way of illuminating dark scenes with portable light, flash is used today for many creative functions, including supplementing daylight and designing complex scenes lit by multiple light sources.

Creating striking or natural-looking images using flash photography can be a difficult artistic and technical challenge. Mastering Canon EOS Flash Photography is the authoritative book on the subject, guiding the reader through Canon's Speedlite flash system, off-camera portable flash, and professional studio lighting. Covering the fundamentals of flash metering technology, it discusses key concepts, and documents the features and functions available with EOS gear. Highly illustrated, this book is loaded with examples and diagrams describing important functions and lighting arrangements, and beautiful photographs demonstrating sophisticated flash techniques. Foreword by David Hobby.

My copy arrived a few days ago and I'm about 1/3 of the way through the book.

I've been involved in photography for about 12 years, so I'm not a complete newbie to the subject. I've found this book to be easy to read and yet loaded with technical info that's explained in a way that's not overwhelming. The photos, examples and illustrations are terrific and the "down memory lane" parts are great for filling in the reasons why some things are the way they are.

I was flipping through the upcoming chapters and it looks like things are about get very interesting.

I've used the authors' website ([...]) as a reference for many years.

Highly recommended!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! Amazing book for Canon shooters. June 10 2010
By Pablo
This book makes me proud to be Canadian :) The writing style is plain (reader-friendly) making it quick to read and easy to understand. This is an amazing feat given the highly technical topic covered.

The information about flash photography in general, and the specific technical workings of the Canon EOS flash system is absolutely amazing! There is information in this book that one would never derive from the camera/flash manuals, and you could probably spend a good year reading Internet forum posts to derive 1/3 of the information if you should be so lucky.

Honestly, I said aloud to myself "WOW" about 1/3 the way through this book. I read it ALL in 5 evenings. It is FILLED with photos, illustrations, and thorough explanations of everything. You will not be wanting for anything by the time you have finished this book. I highly recommend this book!
