Review quote

"After 27 years as a professional photographer, I've seen a lot of how-to photo books and articles. But I've never seen a book quite like this. It's like an emergency manual for DIY weekend projects, filled with useful photos and helpful tips like how to easily modify your lighting with reflectors and how to choose the right portable flash unit. It will stay in my collection for many years to come." -- Ron Wyatt, Photo Workshop Leader & Two-Time Olympic Games Photographer
