  1. Dark art or light craft? Remembering the settings and features needed to make the most of your Canon Speedlite flash system can be daunting Ė itís one of the hardest areas of photography to master. There are different rules, techniques and, in many cases a different approach is needed when shooting with flash.

    Flash can be powerful when it comes to your pictures. By enabling you to add extra light to the ambient light thatís already present, it can get rid of unwanted shadows and add sparkle to your daytime images. And, at other times, you can be in complete control of the light, when you want your Speedlite flash to provide all of the illumination.

    This concise guide to shooting successfully with the Canon Speedlite flash system by Nina Bailey is like having a tutor in your pocket. It explains how to set up the system to suit your situation, the rules to working with flash and how to deploy the light, whether you need a little fill-in or a powerful light source. Tuck this flash Pocketbook in your pocket or your camera bag, and itís immediately to hand when you need a reminder of the settings needed for flash.

    Like many other areas of EOS camera set-up, the flash system is operated using the symbol driven menu. Thereís an at-a-glance guide to these symbols Ė what they mean and what they control. Youíll have a comprehensive guide to how the flash menus work to control an external flashgun. The numerous overrides are explained, such as flash exposure compensation, bracketing, flash exposure lock and more, plus youíll find out how the exposure mode affects the way that flash behaves.

    There are tips for improving results, techniques such as bounce flash, using your flash off-camera as well as an introduction to wireless flash. This last topic is further expanded in the companion flash Pocketbook in the series, How to Shoot with Wireless Flash.

    This book is fully up-to-date, written to include the improvements being introduced in 2020 with the EOS-1D X Mark III and EOS R5, including additional controls in-camera over the flash output.

I have only read half the booklet.
It seems straightforward, to the point, very informative.

If I set out to write one myself it would be like this one.
