Sketching Light: An Illustrated Tour of the Possibilities of Flash

Legendary magazine photographer Joe McNally takes students on another memorable ride with Sketching Light, another trip into the land of light-but this time running the gamut from small flash to big flash and everywhere in between. The author includes coverage of Nikon Speedlights, but he also covers big flash, as well as “in-between” lights as the Elinchrom Quadra. The exploration of new technology, as well as the explanation of older technology. No matter what equipment Joe uses and discusses, the most important element of Joe’s instruction is that it is straightforward, complete and honest. No secrets are held back and the principles he talks about apply generally to the shaping and quality of light, not just to an individual model or brand of flash.
