Using a simple, step-by-step method for setting up and using the newest Nikon iTTL flash units, Mike teaches all the steps required to achieve consistent and amazing flash photos.
He solves the common frustrations associated with flash, and specifically teaches how to use the SB-600, SB-700, SB-800, SB-900, SB-910, and R1C1 strobes. Beginning at a basic level and then progressing to more advanced techniques, Mike teaches everything you need to know about mastering Nikon’s iTTL flash system.
