I was not sure where to post this so I thought I'd try here since this is wedding related. I just finished Syl Arena's Speedlighters Handbook. A very well written book. I was pleasantly surprised that there was not much I was not aware of. There are lot of descriptions of modifiers from on camera to off, flash types, stands, etc. Also a lot of great information of placement of light for effect. It will be a very good reference for me. I should have purchased it long ago. I know there is a big difference between knowledge and application.
So I'm trying to figure what else I can do arm myself to be ready for each situation I will encounter. Also I study the work of the regular wedding photog contributors here and you all have this glow to your images I can't really can't describe in any other way. That was the reason I'm thinking exposure is next to tackle.
I'm well aware that tar and snow are going to be 18% grey, placement of people on a sunny day and metering off the sky. What to do with a bright background indoors when using flash. The book has to be more than 12 pages long I have read very good things about it. I am no expert but not a novice either. I may be incorrect about that. It is not that expensive but I was just wondering if there was something else that may be more suited to what I'm looking for at this time.
