Nina’s ebook The Essential Guide To EOS Flash sets out to teach you in depth to understand and be able to fully utilise the Canon EOS flash system. She looks at a wide range of topics ranging from understanding the very nature of flash, how to set up the camera and flash for the best results, through to improving your flash results by using reflectors and diffusers.

Many photographers see flash as a bit of a black art and something to be avoided if possible. In fact the flash system on EOS is very simple to use, providing you have a good grounding in both the key settings of your camera and understand all the basic principles of photography. Its is also crucial to understand the light levels and conditions that you are shooting in as these will affect the settings that you use on the camera and sometimes also the way that flash is being used within the image that you are taking.

This ebook is applicable to any Canon EOS camera and any of the EX series flash units in the Canon range including the new 600 EX-RT flash unit and most of what Nina talks about is also applicable to the built in flash.
