3.0 out of 5 stars Practical tips for the advanced amateur, 29 Feb. 2012
By 
This review is from: Sketching Light: An Illustrated Tour of the Possibilities of Flash (Voices That Matter) (Paperback)
I am an amateur using a Nikon D300, a couple of CLS speedlights and other flashes and a small softbox etc. Having completed the first 98 pages of this 400-page brick, I have found little new information. But it gives well illustrated examples of different lighting techniques. The message so far is that I should go out and buy more flashes, more flash stands, more softboxes, umbrellas, reflectors and other light shaping items. The best thing is that most examples use small, commonly available speedflashes in stead of bulky, expensive studio gear. But will I actually go out and buy 12 more speedlights, each at the cost of $500, plus all the stands and light shaping gear necessary for them? We can always dream, can't we? And some of it may become reality.
The book is well written, and it seems to be very technically correct. But it seems to avoid more advanced technical terms like guide numbers etc which actually could be useful in flash photography. The book is an inspiration to experiment, and it makes me a bit more conscious about lighting possibilities. It is absolutely worth the money.
