Explore the Possibilities of Flash Photography with The Nikon Creative Lighting System, 3rd Edition
There’s more to your camera than you ever imagined. In this newly updated edition of The Nikon Creative Lighting System, Mike Hagen opens up a whole new world to photographers who may be well versed in photography, but might not have a grasp on flash photography.

With new and rapidly evolving technology, flash photography (especially advanced light modeling with modern iTTL flash systems) has become an art in itself and should be mastered by all aspiring photographers—amateurs as well as professionals. But they often miss out on using the full potential of these systems.

Using a simple, step-by-step method for setting up and using the newest Nikon iTTL flash units, Mike teaches all the steps required to achieve consistent and amazing flash photos. He solves the common frustrations associated with flash and teaches readers how to use the SB-500, SB-600, SB-700, SB-800, SB-900, SB-910, and R1C1 strobes. Also included is a chapter showing system configuration so readers can duplicate the desired results on their own.

Beginning at a basic level and progressing to more advanced techniques, Mike teaches everything you need to know about mastering Nikon’s iTTL flash system.

Those looking to broaden their photographic capabilities to include effective flash techniques should look no further than Mike Hagen’s updated, comprehensive guide.
