This book aims to show how, with just one flash, you can produce amazing portraits where no two are the same.

It starts by covering equipment, which is always a good place to start, especially for beginners, before moving on to more technique based tips. The equipment, obviously, covers flashes but cameras, bags and smaller items such as gaffer tape are also discussed it doesn't seem to miss anything off its list.

The basic lighting and camera control sections are excellent with large diagrams through out to help you understand what the authors are talking about. Then there's pages and pages of lighting techniques that really do cover all the portraits you could ever think to take.

The language isn't overly complicated, the book's easy to work through and the large portrait shots used throughout are inspiring as well as educational. The portraits are also discussed in the text which means it's easy to understand how the shots were produced.

It's a lovely book that's full of interesting ideas and well worth a read.
