Gain the skill and confidence you need to create great images with the most basic and available lighting sources.

That makes it a perfect read for wedding, event, editorial, and portrait photographers.
100% Reliable Flash Photography centers on a strategy of standardization. The first part of the book covers relevant lighting and gear knowledge mostly focusing on how to do some really good work with a simple on-camera flash, or even basic household lighting. There are also off-camera flash techniques including detailed instructions for a basic two-light manual setup that serves as Verosky's typical gear for editorial work. This leads into the core chapter, Standardization, which is about making your gear easier to use and eventually master. The book continues with techniques, examples and diagrams for indoor and outdoor lighting, then several “backstories” quickly detailing shoots with several of the portrait subjects featured in the book.
