Ebook on flash photography

*Just bought 100% Reliable Flash Photography ebook from Edward Verosky site and it’s really a great book if you want to get great results with your camera external flash. The ebook has lots of lighting diagrams and illustrations. I’m really bad at using my flash so I hope this will help me. Thought you could find it useful too :) Here is the link.

PS. I’m in no way affiliated with the above site, just wanted to spread the word among all the other bad flash users :)*
