Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its a tri-head mount. It mounts three flash heads. It does what it says it does.
Pros:

- Not too heavy
Cons:
- Tightening nobs are hard to tighten with fat sussage fingers, like mine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, 18 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't think you can beat this product on price, but the build quality is a little too 'plastic'. The base cracked as I tightened the screw that holds the umbrella. And it happend on both of my brackets.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book that is not just 'basics', 18 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This hardcover book is nice enough to use as a coffee table book, even though it isn't. Lots of theory mixed with practical examples, makes this book a must for photographers that are getting into model/fashion photography.

Why is it missing the last star, then? Well, I personally find the layout slightly confusing. Boxes of text are scatterede around the pages. Some people like that layout. I don't.

True Confessions of Nude Photography: A Step-by-Step Guide to Recruiting Beautiful Models, Lighting, Photographing Nudes, Post-Processing Images, and Maybe Even Getting Paid to Do it
by A. K. Nicholas
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Good and to the point but needs an update, 6 Mar. 2012
When the book arrived, I was a little worried that I had wasted my money on a budget book from the 80's but I was pleasantly surprised.
The book gives a very good introduction to getting started with nude photography and is a good place to start, if that is a photographic field that you want to enter.
I'm not too impressed with the photos and the quality of the images, but that does not take away form the fact that the contents is valuable.
In any case, the book could benefit from a graphical update.

4.0 out of 5 stars To the point with tons of tips and tricks, 4 May 2011
This book is probally the best book on SpeedLighting (that is photography with one or more Speedlights) that is out there. The book offers a lot of tips and tricks, but what I've found most usefull are the way that the author gives you lots of 'aha!' moments, by explaining lighting concepts in an easy to understand way.
The only thing I have agains the book, is the little 'Quick tip' boxes that are scattered around the pages. They give good information, but interupt the reading flow. Minor minus, but has to be mentioned.
