Shoot to Thrill : Speedlight Flash Techniques for Photographers
Shoot to Thrill : Speedlight Flash Techniques for Photographers
by Jessica Mowbray
Edition: Paperback
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another great find from Mr Mowbray, 20 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yet another great find from Mr Mowbray, his books are simply the best I have found on using TTL flash in a real world environment. Straight talking, a bit of humour but just full of fact and examples. Other authors tend to take the subject of speedlights as a black art which only they can possibly understand. This book is bang on the money and "does what it says on the tin". 1 flash, 2 flash, on camera, off camera they are all in this book. No idea who Jessica is but this book is also full of gorgeous women or seniors! Highly recommend this book along with his other books on the subject of using speedlights. The American Equivalent of Michael Freeman? No he is far and away better. 10 out 10

The Adobe Photoshop CC Book for Digital Photographers (2014 Release) (Voices That Matter)

4.0 out of 5 stars To complete my library on PS and LR!, 11 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great book full of examples to work through, all clearly tested and straight to the point. Scott is what I call a relaxed author, full of humour and easy to read. He doesn't go into technical detail too much. Just says the Magic Wand tool is great use it. Marching ants and all. A great companion book to Martin Evening's book on PS CC. Bang up to date with the latest release too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Must have book from Martin, 11 Mar. 2015

Great workshop manual for PS CC, as musty have, full of all the technical detail required. Has a very good index which enable a great serah to be done to solve issues. PS is complicated and I am sure you do not need or want all the information available in the book. It is very comprehensive and makes a great partner to Scott Kelby's books which arte straight to the point.


Speedlight Studio, The : Professional Portraits with Portable Flash
Speedlight Studio, The : Professional Portraits with Portable Flash
by Michael Mowbray
Edition: Paperback
Price: £24.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I have been waiting for!, 11 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a superb book. has just the right level of information. It is pitched at the competent photographer so it is advanced. A great read and packed full of ideas about how to use speedlights. It is written around Cannon products but refers to the Nikon CLS as well. Gives great guidance on what NOT to buy. I too use 4 speedlights and a Sekonic flash meter so it makes a lot of sense to me. I have to say Amherst Media do have a lot of photography books on lighting and portraits, but this being a new book is bang up to date with the latest speedights and dispels lots of myths about the need for large power packs and studio lights.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want a shine. look no further than this, 10 Sept. 2014

Great Value, my old one broke, it went round the wrong way and kept unscrewing the pads! This is a great low cost buy, I would not use it every day as it is a bit delicate, but gives a great finish being a genuine Dual Action polisher. Silverline products always give great value for money

Commercial Photographer's Master Lighting Guide : Second Edition
Commercial Photographer's Master Lighting Guide : Second Edition
by Robert Morrissey
Edition: Paperback
Price: £19.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than usual read of lighting books, 10 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very comprehensive, lots of great ideas and examples. Actually a very good read as well, not full of basic stuff, which if you had bought this book you would be well versed in the basics to actually need this guide. I would recommend it you but you do need to try some the ideas out to cement the new found knowledge, otherwise you will know what you want to do, know it can be done but would not be able to do it without a re read! Does that make sense? I keep this book by my side and keep dipping into it as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars much needed app for kindle, 12 Aug. 2014

At last I can view outlook.com mail and calendars on my kindle, always used to have trouble keeping multiple e mail clients in sync, up loaded Mail, calendars and contacts from outlook2013 to outlook.com, storing all my data on the cloud and . Use this very handy app to read on my kindle. It may even have stopped me buying an Android tablet.

Plug it near your router, press the button to link. Move device to ridge of network, plug in go. In actual fact it boosts your network range very easily. No complicated up addresses, no set up to do. Looks good too. Not cheap but you get what you pay for. Very clear instructions and a free phone number if you should need help. Highly recommended to you.
