Nikon Creative Lighting

Using the SB-600, SB-800, SB-900, and R1C1 Flashes

The Nikon Creative Lighting System

In this newest book from Rocky Nook, The Nikon Creative Lighting System, Mike Hagen opens up a whole new world to those photographers who are already well versed in photography, but may not have a clue about flash photography.

With the new and rapidly evolving technology, flash photography (especially advanced light modeling with modern iTTL flash systems) has become an art in itself and should be mastered by all aspiring photographers -- amateurs as well as professionals -- who are often helpless when it comes to using the full potential of these systems.

Using a simple, step-by-step method for setting up and using the newest Nikon iTTL flash units, Mike teaches all the steps required to achieve consistent and amazing flash photos. He solves the common frustrations associated with flash, and specifically teaches how to use the SB-600, SB-800, and SB-900 strobes. Also included is a chapter showing system configuration so readers can duplicate the desired results on their own.

Beginning at a basic level and then progressing to more advanced techniques, Mike teaches everything you need to know about using Nikon's iTTL flash system.
