    1. A really great introduction to small strobe photography, with a very specific focus on Canon Speedlites This is exactly what I need to find my way around this new to me area of photography While there is a lot of equipment covered, most of the examples and lessons focus on how to do things cheaply and quickly I m glad about this, as I don t want to spend too much money on photography just yet.While the lessons are good, and the information imparted invaluable, many of the photographs used as ex [...]

    2. Schitterend boek Steengoede introductie en vervolmakingscursus in het werken met off body flitsen Gaat uit van Canon camera s en flitsen, maar inhoudelijk zeker ook voor Nikon Fuji andere bruikbaar Geeft algemene uitleg over werking van de curtains, flitstijden, sensoren, scherpte diepte, en gaat dan over naar diverse benaderingen Syl plaatst bij de voorbeeldfoto s altijd een schetsje over de opstelling van de camera en flits en , zodat je effect beter leert begrijpen Zeer praktische leidraad vo [...]

    3. I have mixed impressions of the book I like Syl Arena He incorporates his hometown and his family, namely his three teenage sons, in his business and features them in the book The book has much good information, including a few nuggets that were new to me The book was comprehensive, specific to the Canon equipment that I currently own or hope to own in the near future, easily understandable, and Syl s writing style is engaging So what is not to like As well done as Speedliter s Handbook is, as I [...]

    4. I received this book as a present from my brother Hi Jerry after it languished on my wishlist for a couple years I really wish I d gotten it sooner.This book is amazing It covers everything, and I mean pretty much everything, about Canon Speedlites And a fair bit on flash photography besides.Do you know what high speed sync means for Canon flashes Were you aware that you can make your 430EX strobe multiple times a second in slave mode And how do you use that C group Or, if all of that sounds to [...]

    5. I bought this book to help me understand all the features on my Speedlite 580EXII But it turned out to be a much than that It is of a thorough textbook on photo lightning in general than merely a handbook Syl divides the book in 4 parts Part 1 Before Speedlites there was light Part2 Speedlites fundamentally Part3 Gear for Speedliting Part4 Speedliting in Action.Syl has personal and fun writing style without trying to hard to be funny I really recommend this book fore anyone interested in photo [...]

    6. This is a great basic book on using TTL Speedlites Besides specific information on the Canon line, there are many chapters devoted to general lighting topics such as modifiers, lighting setups, basics on the inverse square law and cross lighting, as well as many fun tips along the way The photos in the book are not inspiring and some were downright awful surely we aren t working toward THAT But I did get a lot out of the book I m a 12 year pro photographer wanting to get a better handle on the T [...]

    7. Excellent practical introduction to flash photography Very pedagogic text that made me understand what the different buttons on my Canon speedlites are Some parts of it become too generic and can be found in other lightning books some of which are much better than this But the parts that explain Canon speedlites are indispensable.

    8. brilliant book on how to i understand light ii then deeper into how to interact light with Canon flash iii outdoor situation iv indoor situation v gadgets that help to create special effects, or light controls both outdoor indoors vi examples and cases Must have and must read, and will help A marvel.

    9. This book is a very detailed and comprehensive manual about using Canon speedlites The author does a great job of explaining different things that you can do with speedlites I loved all of the pictures that helped demonstrate how the same shot can look completely different just by changing the settings on the camera and the speedlites.

    10. The book had some good information although the majority of it assumes you have either multiple spoedliter s or other external lighting that your working with I wish there was about using your flash singly or in different types of shoots like weddings, night shoots and sports mode.

    11. this book I can suggest it right now , instead of reading it page by page u can surf through it as u like and as what u want really I took too long time to finish it from cover to cover but it Worth s.

    12. Very good book if you are just starting in the Speedlight world I cant recommend enough this book, the only complain is the photos used in the examples, sometimes, get the feeling are just half done, still think they reflect the idea, just not as elaborate as you will expect.

    13. Fantastic comprehensive introduction to off camera speedliting It covers everything from shooting traditional portraits to light modifications to buying batteries.

    14. Great book on Canon flash I just wish it was updated for the new 600ex Rt s still, the concepts in here are solid It s a great lighting book

    15. If you have a Canon speedlite and want to better familiarise yourself with its full range of capabilities, read this book and keep this book handy An excellent reference guide.

    16. Very good information Even if you don t have a Speedlite yet , there is good info on lighting and balancing ambient and flash.

    17. Awesome book for learning to use Canon Speedlites Some really good basic photography here as well I learned a lot and realized I have a lot to learn.
