Here... I'll save you 30 bucks. Bounce the flash off large surfaces. Ride the flash compensation. Exposure compensation effects the global lighting of the image. That's about it in this book. Limited content, and if you look at this guy's work it ain't that much better than you or me... Unimpressed.show more
