Verosky's New Book: 100% Reliable Flash Photography
My friend, Ed Verosky, has beaten me to the punch with yet another great ebook: "100% Reliable Flash Photography." Click here to view more details.
This time out, Ed tackles the (seemingly) daunting subject of flash photography. And he makes it all so un-daunting!
This book is more detailed and comprehensive than his "10 Ways to Improve Your Boudoir Photography Now." Course, that's not to say it's a better book. It's simply a different book with a different subject. Flash photography is, in many ways, a "hard" skill requiring various, technical, "how-to" details. Boudoir photography, much like shooting glamour, is so much about the "soft" skills, like psychology and communication, and their roles in the skills required.
The techniques Ed shares in this new ebook underscore many of the same ideas I preach in my soon-to-be-released, Guerrilla Glamour: How to Get In, Get Out, and Get the Shot. What that means is learning how to make the whole process as easy and efficient as possible-- "automatic," for lack of a better word. This, of course, means less worrying about things like lighting and more focus on the subjects of your shots. Yep. That's what I'm talking about! Making it easy so shooting becomes fun. Even more fun than it already is!
Anything that can get me from Point A to Point B with Point B being a successful shot, and doing so via the straightest line between those two points and in the most simple, automatic, worry-free, easy-as-pie way, is what I'm all about. (Not that making pies is all that easy. I know. I've tried. But that's baking. We're talking about photography here.)
As Ed details in his new book, 100% Reliable Flash Photography, there are easier, hassle-free and, literally, guaranteed ways to achieve terrific results with your flash photography. All you have to do is take the time to learn them and practice them.
These aren't mystical "Secrets of the Pros" revealed. These are hard-and-fast skills you can learn to access whenever you need to. It's all about taking the time to upgrade your knowledge and your know-how.
And while you're at it -- at learning to improve your know-how, that is -- don't forget Ashley Karyl's awesome ebook, How to Photograph Nudes Like a Pro. Another fine ebook to add to your cyber-library.
