With On-Camera Flash Techniques for Digital Wedding and Portrait Photography, photographers learn how to create stunning, professional images while avoiding the common pitfalls of using an on-camera flash. Techniques for using simple accessories, such as bounce cards and diffusers, as well as how to improve a lighting scenario by enhancing it rather than overwhelming it. The book shows photographers how to master these challenging aspects of portraiture.

For wedding and environmental portrait photographers who must work in ever-changing lighting scenarios, executing these tips will avoid flat, lifeless images with harsh shadows, washed-out skin tones, cavernous black backgrounds, and other unappealing visual characteristics. The results will be better images, as well as happier clients, which will create more sales.
