Learning off camera flash photography

5 years 10 months ago #418830 by Sara Jacobson
Good morning and happy new year photography talk.   One of my goals for the new year is to learn off camera flash photography.  Can you suggest a couple must read books for someone getting started with off camera flash?  

Thank you

:agree:
I second this. If you are a totally budget bound photographer, or you like DIY shooting. This is the place to go.

You made a great choice, by far one of the best books on understanding light.   You might want to look at "Lighting Notebook" which is another good one.
