New eBook – Making Light

One of the most intimidating skills to wrap your head around is the use of flash, especially when you take it off the camera. Teachers like Joe McNally and David Hobby have done a lot to make this stuff more accessible. The latest Craft & Vision release is MAKING LIGHT, An Introduction to Off-Camera Flash, by Piet Van den Eynde, and it explores off-camera flash really well. Piet (pronounced Pete) is a great teacher and he covers theory in an easy-to-understand way, and so as not to leave anyone out, he covers both Canon and Nikon flashes. Piet discusses radio triggers and modifiers and all the geek stuff you’ll need to get your flash off the camera and changing the quality of your light. Once he’s discussed the practical stuff he goes on to show you 9 case studies, ways that he’s used off-camera flash in his own work as a traveling photographer who loves making photographs of people.

I’ve seen Piet at work with his flashes and he’s amazing. What I loved most about the way he works is the understated, no-nonsense, way he uses does it. No big light stands, no big fuss. His techniques are practical, real-world techniques and they produce beautiful results. If you bought Piet’s first book, The Power of Black and White, you know what a thorough teacher he is, and what amazing value his books are. I’m his publisher and it breaks my heart to sell these for only $5. :-) This is a meaty book with lots of information in it. If you’ve got a flash or have been holding off because it intimidates you, get this book. If you’ve been playing with off-camera flash, learning from Piet will help you take the next steps.

A Deeper Frame

In my first eBook, TEN, I made ten suggestions for improving your photographs. The first of ten was to add greater depth to your photographs, but I didn’t elaborate much. Now halfway through writing a new book, Photographically Speaking, sidelines by what might have been a fatal fall while shooting in Pisa, Italy, I have […]
