When it comes to photography, it’s all about the light. After spending more than thirty years behind the lens—working for National Geographic, Time, Life, and Sports Illustrated—Joe McNally knows about light. He knows how to talk about it, shape it, color it, control it, and direct it. Most importantly, he knows how to create it...using small hot shoe flashes. 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. Whether he’s photographing a gymnast on the Great Wall, an alligator in a swamp, or a fire truck careening through Times Square, Joe uses these flashes to create great light that makes his pictures sing.

Following up on the great success of The Moment It Clicks and The Hot Shoe Diaries: Big Light from Small Flashes, legendary magazine photographer Joe McNally takes us on another memorable ride with Sketching Light, another trip into the land of light--but this time running the gamut from small flash to big flash, and everywhere in between. Of course, Joe includes coverage of Nikon Speedlights, but he also covers big flash, as well as "in-between" lights as the Elinchrom Quadra. The exploration of new technology, as well as the explanation of older technology. No matter what equipment Joe uses and discusses, the most important element of Joe's instruction is that it is straightforward, complete, and honest. No secrets are held back, and the principles he talks about apply generally to the shaping and quality of light, not just to an individual model or brand of flash. He tells readers what works and what doesn't via his let's-see-what-happens approach, he shows how he sets up his shots with plentiful sketches and behind-the-scenes production shots, and he does it all with the intelligence, clarity, and wisdom that can only come from shooting in the field for 30 years for the likes of National Geographic, Time, Life, and Sports Illustrated--not to mention the wit and humor of a clearly warped (if gifted) mind.

Erfahren Sie, was selbst mit nur einem einzigen Blitzlicht alles möglich wird! Wer die Bilder der Strobisten kennt, der weiß, dass der gefürchtete Fahndungsfotolook schon lange passé ist und dass in den kleinen Geräten ein enormes kreatives Potenzial steckt. So kann der einzelne Blitz nicht nur beleuchten, sondern auch Farben und Muster projizieren, und es ist ein Leichtes, aus einem Blitz mehrere Lichtquellen zu zaubern. So zeigt Ihnen Tilo Gockel, wie Sie Abschatter, Reflektoren und Spiegel einsetzen, um das Blitzlicht aufzuteilen, umzulenken und zu duplizieren. Darüber hinaus lernen Sie, Ihr Blitzgerät vom Blitzschuh der Kamera losgelöst zu verwenden. Sie erfahren, wie Sie den Blitz mehrfach hintereinander an verschiedenen Stellen auslösen und diese Idee sogar in Richtung Light-Painting ausweiten können. Der Autor kennt die Probleme, die sich beim Einstieg in die knifflige Technik des entfesselten Blitzens stellen und verrät Ihnen in den Workshops zahlreiche Tipps und Tricks hierzu. Die praxisnahe Darstellung und die Reduzierung der Technik auf das Notwendige ermöglichen Ihnen einen schnellen Start in die Blitzfotografie mit raschen Erfolgserlebnissen. Die Shootings im Buch motivieren zum Nachahmen sowie zum spielerischen Umgang mit Blitzlicht und helfen Ihnen beim Erweitern des eigenen Licht-Werkzeugkastens um viele neue Licht-Setups und Ideen.

Da 35 anni Joe McNally crea fotografie che raccontano delle storie. Le sue immagini, di volta in volta drammatiche, sottili, energiche, gioiose, toccanti, misteriose, sono eterogenee quanto gli approcci alla loro illuminazione. In Fotografare la luce, Joe vi porta dietro le quinte per spiegare le sue soluzioni per l’illuminazione di decine di fotografie. Ciò che rende unico questo libro, però, e che verrete guidati oltre le aride cifre per scoprire come far funzionare la luce in relazione alle foto. Fotografare la luce tratta di flash grandi e piccoli, e inizia con la dimostrazione delle tecniche di illuminazione di base, dei diffusori e delle soluzioni a flash singolo, per poi passare alla disamina delle singole immagini, delle tecnologie dei flash (come la sincro ad alta velocità e i più recenti attivatori TTL via radio) e di moltissimi stili e approcci all’illuminazione. Joe mostra le foto che crea man mano che si avvicina allo scatto finale, e arricchisce il percorso con fotografie del “dietro le quinte” e schizzi che mostrano in dettaglio il posizionamento delle luci e le impostazioni di potenza, apertura e tempi di posa. Naturalmente le cifre non raccontano mai tutta la storia, e Joe va sempre oltre i metadati per arrivare al cuore dell’immagine. Ogni racconto tratta l’arte e la tecnica, svelando il modo in cui Joe si rapporta al soggetto e quali sono i motivi delle sue scelte tecniche e creative. Scritto con la leggerezza e lo humor che contraddistinguono l’autore, Fotografare la luce è ricchissimo di intuizioni e informazioni, e della conoscenza e della saggezza che nascono da un lavoro sul campo sempre attento, appassionato e meditato.

Within the Frame (2009) received critical recognition for its humanity and practical teaching, and in this revision of his classic best-selling book, David duChemin encourages you to search for what matters to you and not give up until you convey it through your photography: “I’m chasing my vision, and you will chase yours in the places best suited to that. What’s important is that you chase that vision intentionally and with passion, refusing to let it be anything but yours and yours alone.” Through a heartfelt discussion about creating photographs of people, places, cultures, and the discovery of a personal point of view that makes those stories compelling and authentic, David teaches how to seek and serve your creative vision through the art of photography by highlighting images from his adventures around the world. Regardless of the setting, it’s the lessons about the central role of vision and expression in photography that sets this book apart, even if you never wander far from home. David shares the nuances of approaching different subjects, the value of scouting locations (and wandering in unfamiliar places), techniques for photographing landscapes, how to capture a sense of place and culture with sensitivity through images of food, festivals, art and faith, and more. This edition includes new images, creative exercises, updated chapters, a streaming companion video, and discussions about changing perspectives, including an increased focus on landscape photography. Most importantly, David maintains the crucial theme of vision–and he helps you find, cultivate, and pursue your own, and then fit it within the frame. “If the book simply stayed right there in the realm of how-to, go-to advice, it would be a wonderful book indeed. But it crosses the line from useful to inspired because David opens up much more than his camera bag. He opens his considerable heart and mind, both of which belong to a masterful storyteller driven by an acute sympathy for the human condition, coupled with an intense curiosity and respect for both the differences and the sameness of the world.” –Joe McNally, photographer, author of The Hot Shoe Diaries and The Moment It Clicks “David does something here that few have ever done–he not only shows his absolutely captivating images, he shows the thought process behind those images, as well as how to start capturing the types of images we all long to take. People will be talking about this book for years to come. It’s that good!” –Scott Kelby, photographer and best-selling author “Some photographers inspire you with how great their photographs are, while other photographers inspire you to be a better photographer; David duChemin does both in Within the Frame.” –John Paul Caponigro, photographer
