    This book is THE handbook for shooting with off-camera flash. The photos are gorgeous. There are tons of image sequences showing the results of different flash and camera settings and setups. It’s obvious in his writing how seriously he takes his ligthing. And it shows in the pictures. The book is filled with these great photos and he breaks them all down so you can see what went into creating the final prodcut. I’ve read many great lighting books but this one really has it all. As with his On-Camera Flash book, this is essential reading.

    I wish I had this book when I first started out. Taking your flash OFF your camera is the single most important thing you can do in my opinion to separate yourself from the pack. Red Eye magically disappears. I was taking a workshop and realized my pictures did not look like those who where using Off camera flash, but I did not know where to begin. This book is pretty awesome, well written and easy to understand. Topics include: The Right Gear, Exposure Control for Ambient Light, Settings, When to use High Speed sync, TTL or Manual, Triggering techniques and Positioning of the Flash. I like the point that on overcast days you can pick any background you wish and by adding a light and a little practice with the knowledge from Neil, you have complete control. For use in Portraiture, Fashion, and Wedding photography. However, I do use ON camera flash. Some situations call for it. Yet, if given the choice i get superior results with OFF Camera flash and this is the book that explains the mystery.

    If you want to understand the why and how to Really use Off Camera flash, then get this book.
    I have followed Nick and he is using a common sense approach in teaching off camera flash.
    The Book has 10 chapters from the Intro to Sample sessions. If you read this book and apply what Nick is saying then you should have no fear.
    Look at Chapter 4 Manual vs TTL, Flash, you will learn and understand what manual flash is and better understand what manual flash exposure is
    controlled by 4 things

    aperture choice
    iso choice
    subject to light source distance
    power setting on the flash
