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

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

In his new book, The Hot Shoe Diaries, Big Light from Small Flashes ($40, Peachpit), Joe McNally takes us behind the scenes to share his lighting solutions for the great images he creates.

Using Nikon Speedlights, McNally lets readers 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, McNally uses these flashes to create great light that makes his pictures sing.

Joe knows a lot about light and great images. He has spent more than thirty years creating great images for National Geographic, Time, Life, and Sports Illustrated. In 2008, McNally wrote the critically acclaimed and bestselling book The Moment It Clicks.
