Publisher Description

When it comes to photography, it’s all about the light.

After spending more than thirty years behind the lens—working for National Geographic, Time, Life, and Sports Illustrated—Joe McNally knows about light. He knows how to talk about it, shape it, color it, control it, and direct it. Most importantly, he knows how to create it...using small hot shoe flashes.

In The Hot Shoe Diaries, Joe brings you behind the scenes to candidly share his lighting solutions for a ton of great images. Using Nikon Speedlights, Joe lets you in on his uncensored thought process—often funny, sometimes serious, always fascinating—to demonstrate how he makes his pictures with these small flashes. Whether he’s photographing a gymnast on the Great Wall, an alligator in a swamp, or a fire truck careening through Times Square, Joe uses these flashes to create great light that makes his pictures sing.

Nikon user manual

This book is full of good information. It's kind of like having a pro photographer walk you through a shoot. But it reads WAY too much like a Nikon user manual. Which could be great, but I shoot Canon. It would have been nice for the author to recognize this and maybe use more general concepts rather than being so specific to one brand.

$17.59 at the Kindle Store

I am a enthusiast ibook reader.
I see sometimes large price differences. this book is probably best example.
The price is $17.59 at the Kindle Store, $31.99 here.
I wonder why the difference?

The best how to book ever

Joe has a way of explaining how to take pictures in a way that really makes it easy to understand, I have thoroughly enjoyed this book. In fact, once I picked it up I couldn't put it down. This is a must buy book.
