Ive been taking some courses and practicing quite a bit using some speedlites and Nikon’s CLS System. I would love to get my hands on those great books and read on some “behind-the-scenes” techniques using strobes and different lighting scenarios.

53 Vivek Bansal March 1, 2011 at 8:47 am

You could spend bucket loads of money on a fancy lens & camera but if your lighting is not up to scratch then all that money seems pointless. Im hoping that this book will point me in the right direction with my lighting woes.

54 Amy Lindsey March 1, 2011 at 9:05 am

This would be an awesome book for my library!!! Hopeful!!!

55 Michael Ivancsics March 1, 2011 at 9:33 am

It’s always fun to see another photographer and how they think. Sometimes you learn a new trick and sometimes you learn how not to do something. The Strobists have done a great job educating the masses on the quality of light.

56 Nuno Cruz March 1, 2011 at 9:49 am

I want one also!
