Speedlights & Speedlites Summary

Speedlights & Speedlites: Creative Flash Photography at the Speed of Light by Lou Jones (Boston-based freelance fine art and commercial photographer)

Canon Speedlites and Nikon Speedlights are small, off-camera flashguns that can provide big results - if you know how to use them properly. Acclaimed Boston photographers Lou Jones, Bob Keenan and Steve Ostrowski guide you through the technical and creative aspects of how to get the most out of these powerful tools in this indispensable guide, packed full of inspirational images and comprehensive diagrams of the lighting set ups used to capture them.

They are significantly more advanced, lighter and considerably cheaper than a standard flashgun, and have many advantages. They are small (and cheap) enough that a number can be carried in your kit, and they can be used in combination, triggered wirelessly. They use through-the-lens (TTL) metering, which allows you to use the in-camera LCD and histograms to calculate the required power/direction, rather than havng to use a light meter or trial and error. They use proprietary, dedicated technology (from Canon and Nikon) that means there are no compatability issues.

Getting the most out of them, however, remains a mystery - most photographers still just use their speedlights in the same way as a standard flash gun. This is where this book comes in.

Speedlights & Speedlites Reviews

"this could be considered the cutting edge of lighting, and as speedlights are affordable and portable and capable, pushing the capabilities and indeed understanding them is very much on the mind of many serious digital photographers" Simon Gurney, Photographer
