This ebook covers everything you’ll need to know to use High Speed Electronic Flash and Camera Triggering Devices to capture wildlife in action. The ebook begins with a treatment of flash, including a thorough explanation of TTL flash, especially as it would relate to high speed flash techniques. Manual Flash, covering Power Ratios, Guide Numbers, and the importance and convenience of manual flash, is thoroughly explained, especially as it relates to camera triggering devices.
The second half of the book deals with camera and flash triggering devices, specifically using the state of the art equipment produced by Cognisys, the Range IR, and the Sabre, and how to use this equipment to take incredible wildlife images. Readers will learn how to photograph hummingbirds, bats, and various wildlife subjects, with diagrams illustrating the setups.

The ebook is patterned after Joe’s popular lecture on this subject, and the progression of the topics are systematic and logical, interspersed with quizzes and questions Joe asks you to try. The goal of this book is for photographers to be able to do the type of images illustrated in the ebook, and to understand that gear to do so.

The book was made with Blurb, an online publisher, and can be purchased directly through them via the link, or get signed copies directly from us for $59.99 (plus PA sales tax if applicable).
