Book: Understanding Flash Photography: How to Shoot Great Photographs Using Electronic Flash is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book on Flash Photography! This book explains in readily understandable terms the fundamentals of flash photography. It contains some eureka or 'now I understand' moments and my flash photographs are now so much better than before. Bryan Peterson refers to his flash as a 'portable sun' another light source and he is so right. I can't think of any downside to the book if you really want to master flash. You will not regret buying it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoy all of Mr. Peterson's books This is just another book in my collection. As many times as I read these books, I always pick up, or recall a trick I'd forgotten, a trick or two. All of Peterson's books are worthwhile and I am constantly recommending them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Instruction I have only been using available light (nature, birds, airshows) for quite a while and really want to learn to utilize flash in a natural/unobtrusive way. The explanations and samples provided help to demistify the concepts, and I am experimenting with how to incorporate flash more frequently.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really� good book This is my 2nd Bryan Peterson book, and I really like his way of explaining procedures and techniques. Well written and thorough, with good text that is easy to understand and follow, and great photos , too. Just about everything applies to film users, also.
