The Hot Shoe Diaries: Creative Applications of Small Flashes
Title | The Hot Shoe Diaries: Creative Applications of Small Flashes
Author | Joe McNally
Type | Book
Rating | 10
Notes | After spending more than thirty years behind the lens—working for National Geographic, Time, Life, and Sports Illustrated—Joe McNally knows about light. He knows how to talk about it, shape it, color it, control it, and direct it. Most importantly, he knows how to create it...using small hot shoe flashes.

In The Hot Shoe Diaries, Joe brings you behind the scenes to candidly share his lighting solutions for a ton of great images. Using Nikon Speedlights, Joe lets you in on his uncensored thought process—often funny, sometimes serious, always fascinating—to demonstrate how he makes his pictures with these small flashes. Whether he’s photographing a gymnast on the Great Wall, an alligator in a swamp, or a fire truck careening through Times Square, Joe uses these flashes to create great light that makes his pictures sing.

About the Author:

His most notable series is "Faces of Ground Zero—Portraits of the Heroes of September 11th," a collection of giant Polaroid portraits.

Comments | [10/28/09] This is an amazing book. It has inspired me to do many different things with off camera flash. I consider myself a follower of Joe McNally-ism. This definitely gives you the theory into light and opens new doors for you to try new things! A definite recommendation!

Comments | [06/15/09] One of the only "Strobist-style" books out there, doing a wonderful job of breaking down the use of small speedlite flashes to get unique photo on a budget. The language is a bit thicker and more technical than "The Moment It Clicks," but that is to be expected.
