The Flash Stick is a book all about how to best utilise the effects of the flask stick in your photography.

The flash stick is a long pole with a flash unit on the end, which allows you to light the shot from a different angle without investing in free standing lighting. It can be retracted, so is easy to store in a large bag.

The book first begins by taking us through the essentials of shooting with a flash stick, including what camera modes to use and how different apertures and shutter speeds will affect the overall shot in natural light, before flash is added. We are then walked through using a flash controller, and how adjusting its setting will affect your shots.

We are then shown how ideas for shots are formed, and how to practise your flash stick lighting on fake models, to enable you to get your technique right before working with actual models.

The stick is versatile, and can be used for fill flash, and in co operation with available light to create great looking shots. Reflectors and other adapters can be added to the flash stick to make it even more adaptable to any situation.

The book encourages you to think outside the box with your photography, and use the flask stick to create new and different looking images. It is handy as a device to enable you to get different angled flash without using a free standing lighting unit, but is is a very niche product and looks as if it might be difficult to hold and control, especially if you are working alone.
