Bring your cable release so that you can get time exposures of the lightning that pops during the monsoon thunderstorms. Hi Joe, I am looking forward to the new book!

Might be a little high level for someone just entering vy, but if you have a hot shoe flash, this is a must read! This book was too insider Nikon for me. Above is noon time, Lake Lavozero.

Jul 15, Sarah rated it really liked it Shelves: McNally is accompanied on the photo sessions in the disc by Bob Krist, another distinguished “National Geographic” veteran. He shares his process candidly, advocates going out and shooting, and using the gear we have.

Very useful stuff inside. Or stop by the Daily Wildcat and lay some inspiration on aspiring PJs. I am just reading your amazing book and winder if ncnally simply ho some flashes or equipment from your photos during post-prcessing.

The Hot Shoe Diaries: Big Light from Small Flashes by Joe McNally

The high visual impact of his photographs are what drew my attention to “The Hot Shoe Diaries” on a Borders bookshelf. Couple of reasons for blog lite or, truth be told, blog zero over the last two weeks.


Obviously, the technical types who write manuals need to present their information The interesting thing about this book is that it has an enjoyable, casual style, inside a well thought-out and executed three hundred or so pages. I needed some background and explanation of what each device was. Also a note about technology: A great jooe overall. As you say, being persistent helps in this business.

The Hot Shoe Diaries: Big Light from Small Flashes (Voices That Matter)

Inside those chunks of ice were chickens. There are a few chapters about the gear side of things, but that is all Nikon gear. What little is in terms of technical references is about Nikon gear. I love Joe’s casual writing style, which belies his absolute brilliance as a lighting guru and conceptual photographer.

A pretty good read. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. This is not a straight instructional manual on using speed-lights. Want to Read saving…. Joe is a great writer!

In Tucson right now for the Geographic. Feb 10, Darren Smith rated it it was amazing. McNally is a little rambly and over-colloquial some of the time, but he also knows his stuff, so this is full of useful practical adivce for increasing your lighting options anywhere you may be shooting. I needed some charts!

He relies almost exclusively on the use of hand-held strobes in pulling off some really amazing results. McNally starts by laying out all his equipment and letting you have a gander, then takes you, chapter by chapter, on a shooting spree.

Despite what some other reviewers have opined, this book is not just inspirational but a great discussion of “how” to light images mcnaly with small, hand-held strobes. Oct 12, Tim Street rated it liked it.


It’s broken down into a series of many, many quick practical ho A flashy little book about flash photography. The book contains over a hundred pages devoted to one-flash photographs.

I see a Christmas gift for my self in the future, hehe.

The book that turned me on to McNally and arguably has had the most influence on my understanding of strobist work and off-camera flash.

Bby has a very engaging style of story telling and is a master of the craft. The other photographer’s I was working with primarily use Nikon gear and this looked as it would provide some good inspiration for us all.
