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.

Customer reviews

The book is very interesting for people that know what they are doing. It gives you an insight into Joe's mind. In my opinion it is best used to give ideas about how to set shoots, to inspire you. This is not a how to guide!show more
