I've read 3 of Bryans books prior to this and enjoyed them all. This one though was not so good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mis-Hitting, 29 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Understanding Flash Photography: How to Shoot Great Photographs Using Electronic Flash and Other Artificial Light Sources (Paperback)
