‘The Speedliter’s Handbook’ Review

Jun 26, 2011

The Speedliter’s Handbook, by Syl Arena The Speedliter’s Handbook, by Syl Arena, is the best book about off-camera flash photography that I have ever read. Go buy it – it’s that simple!

‘Understanding Exposure’ Review

‘Understanding Exposure’ Review

Mar 7, 2010

Understanding Exposure: Revised Edition by Bryan Peterson (available at Amazon US and UK) was one of the first photography books I read, and I thoroughly recommend it to any budding photographer. The title of the book sounds dry, like it’s going to be very technical and hard to read – but this couldn’t be further from the truth. It’s actually written in...
