I going to update the books section to include some new and some old books worth reading. But it’s important to also include other forms of media such as the one below.
Roughly five times as long as the “Speed of Light” DVD, “Hands-On” is a Nikon flash seminar in a box, chock full of highly detailed information. Photographers Bob Krist and Joe McNally start you in the studio with the basics and then hit the road for some high-end location shooting.
They walk you through both the theory and practice in detail — you will walk away with a thorough understanding of how to use what is widely considered to be the best flash system in the industry.
They go from simple, one-light setups to a tour de force *13-light* shoot at dusk. The DVD is suitable for all levels, from absolute beginner to long-time CLS users looking for fresh ideas.
You will watch this one more than once, and it will influence the way you light for years to come. Highly recommended for Strobist-style lighting, it is the best resource to date for learning Nikon’s Creative Lighting System.
