Rate & Review

The Expanded Guides are much more than just camera and software manuals. Written by experts and with real-life examples, they are jargon-free and full-colour. They also include a quick reference wallet card (pictured), and "Photographer's Grey" coloured endpapers for metering. With such a comprehensive - yet accessible - approach, both amateur and professional photographers alike can release the massive potential of their systems, with superior results.

The Ammonite Press Photographic Lighting - The Expanded Guide is complete guide book to lightening. One of the most over-used, yet misunderstood pieces of photographic equipment is the flash unit in its many forms. While a flash unit - either built in to the camera or a separate device - offers the advantage of adding light to your images, its biggest disadvantage is the complex nature of the flash, which prevents many from using it to its full potential. Seeking an understanding of the nomenclature, the buttons and dials on the flash itself, and the menus inside is akin to trying to learn a foreign language. What is FEC? What does TTL mean and how is it used effectively? What is high-speed synchronisation? How can the less technically gifted photographer understand the complexities of such systems and put them to effective use in the field? Studying a manual full of technical jargon is a daunting task and just as confusing as the flash itself. Professional photographer Robert Harrington takes the confusion out of the subject of photographic lighting, and offers invaluable guidance and expert tips that will benefit all keen photographers.
