The Nikon Creative Lighting System, 2nd Edition — New from Rocky Nook
Using the SB-600, SB-700, SB-800, SB-900, SB-910, and R1C1 Flashes
Santa Barbara, CA — March 13, 2012 — Mike Hagen opens up a whole new world to those photographers who are already well versed in photography but may not have a clue about flash photography.
With the new and rapidly evolving technology, flash photography (especially advanced light modeling with modern iTTL flash systems) has become an art in itself and should be mastered by all aspiring photographers—amateurs as well as professionals—who are often helpless when it comes to using the full potential of these systems.
Using a simple, step-by-step method for setting up and using the newest Nikon iTTL flash units, The Nikon Creative Lighting System, 2nd Edition (Rocky Nook, $39.95 USD) teaches all the steps required to achieve consistent and amazing flash photos. Mike 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. Also included is a chapter showing system configuration so readers can duplicate the desired results on their own.
Beginning at a basic level and progressing to more advanced techniques, Mike teaches you everything you need to know about mastering Nikon’s iTTL flash system.
