More About the Author

With more than a million copies of his 100-plus books in print, David D. Busch is the world's #1 selling author of camera-specific guidebooks, and the originator of popular series like David Busch's Pro Secrets, David Busch's Quick Snap Guides, and David Busch's Guides to Digital SLR Photography.

His twelve hugely successful books for Nikon digital cameras are the top-selling guidebooks for their respective camera models. He has also written the most comprehensive and best-selling guides for many different models from Canon, Sony, Pentax, and other vendors.

Busch's dozens of other books devoted to digital photography include Digital SLR Cameras and Photography for Dummies, David Busch's Digital Infrared Pro Secrets and Mastering Digital SLR Photography. As a roving photojournalist for more than 20 years, he illustrated his books, magazine articles, and newspaper reports with award-winning images. Busch has operated his own commercial studio, suffocated in formal dress while shooting weddings-for-hire, and shot sports for a daily newspaper and upstate New York college.

The graduate of Kent State University in Ohio operated his own photo studio and was a principal in one of the largest public relations firms based in San Diego, California, working on press conferences, press kits, media tours, and sponsored photo trade magazine articles for clients including Eastman Kodak Company and Hewlett-Packard. Busch has published more than 2000 photography articles under his by-line in more than 100 different publications. His photos have appeared on the covers of magazines, and in both print and television advertising.

Busch has become one of the leading photojournalist/authors worldwide. He has had as many as five books appear simultaneously in the Amazon.com Top 25 Digital Photography Books, and when Michael Carr of About.com named the top five digital photography books for beginners, the #1 and #2 choices were his Digital Photography All-in-One Desk Reference for Dummies and Mastering Digital Photography.

Busch was a featured guest speaking on digital photography on Toronto's Breakfast Television show, has been a call-in guest for more than two dozen radio shows in major US markets, and his advice has been featured in the United States' National Public Radio's All Things Considered programme. His work has been translated into Arabic, Czech, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Bulgarian, German, Italian, French, and other languages.

I'm a great fan of David Busch's Compact Field Guides, even more so for the simple fact that, being spiral bound, you can lay them open at any page! That encourages one to use them more readily, which I suppose is the general idea. I already had one covering my Nikon D7000 and one on macro photography. This one, dealing with flash photography, is once again a handy reference. I would have liked to see a bit more on actual lighting set-ups; having said that, there is plenty else in the book to encourage you to practise and experiment. Apart from anything else, these guides are just such good value for money (my having paid a little over 20 in total for my three, through Amazon).

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book 18 Nov 2013
By alfredo
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
this is a very easy manual where all basic controls and techniques of flash photography are explained. It is written in plain English and it goes directly to the point. This book is so well organized that you do not have to read from start to end, you can choose the section you are interested in and go to the point.

Handy book. Very good explanations for a beginner in flash photography. Easy to read. Economic book and easy to carry around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good summary of flash photography 21 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm an experienced amateur photographer, focused up to now on landscape and outdoor photography, and I wanted to learn well flash technique, to do also portrait photography and to be able to use flash in the most general situations. This book is really good. It's a pocket guide for flash photographers, and explains the topic in a plain and accessible way. It's more targeted towards novice flash photographers and people that need a quick refresh, but contains all the aspects you need to use properly the flash. If you are willing to learn at the same time more regarding pure creative aspects of flash use it's perhaps better you complement Busch's book with another on flash photography (like Brian Peterson's, for example).
