Ziser's Captured by the Light

I've got this as well... definitely very good with regard to positioning subjects (e.g. subject's face to camera angle and how the viewer will see parts of the face along with shadows) and detailing portrait lighting techniques, and while these things are universal, the book does lean toward the wedding photographer. Furthermore, I thought it lacked some technical detail... I've only read it once, and that was shortly after I started getting into using flash and OCF, and I was still missing a decent amount of knowledge regarding flash photography in general. That said, I recently picked up, Understanding Flash Photography, by Bryan Peterson, and while I now know a lot of the technical principles (mainly from reading here, and watching numerous videos on the subject) I think that would have been more valuable to me when first getting into using flash. Maybe I need to go back and re-read Ziser's book and see if I was just too new to the subject at the time that I missed the detail nuggets...

I reread all my lighting books. As my knowledge has evolved I've been able to pull more detail out the readings. His description of how the assistant will know where they should be with the light is worth the book itself, IMHO. Hot shoe diaries was interesting, but I've been more interested in portrait style of shooting.

Agreed - I've actually read almost all of the books I've picked up over the past 3 yrs at least 2x (except that one) and usually do pick up new things I had previously missed. I also agree about the assistant knowing their position... however, this is part of what I was mentioning being somewhat geared toward the wedding photographer. Obviously, you don't have to be a wedding photographer to have an assistant, but I'm a learning-amateur and don't have an assistant... so while it made sense it wasn't all that useful for me.

Cannon picture camera have a very good quality. It can take picture in very less light effect.

True, but a well placed flash can make a picture better. My doll Pat weeding the garden taken in full shade makes a dull picture but adding a flash camera right made for a more compelling image. :p
