Light is Everything!

Joe McNally is my Hero

I love Joe McNally. He rocks the set. His knowledge and experience when it comes to lighting are some of the best in the business. I just got his book The Hot Shoe Diaries from the Library but I will be buying it in the future. It is incredible! 😀 For anyone wanting to learn more about small flashes and flash photography, this is the book for you – even better if you shoot Nikon like Joe and all the really good photographers do  (but Canonites can learn from the principles) 😉 The book takes you through various photos that Joe has made using creative lighting. He talks about all the tips and tricks used to get the shot which is really helpful for people just beginning. After reading the first half of the book, I decided I would to and try out some of his principles when it comes to off camera flash. I include here the sample image and a diagram of how I setup the shot.
