In-depth how-to guide teaches Canon speedlite users everything they need to know to craft the best light for any situation

Most in-depth resource for Canon speedlite users.

Clear and logical instruction from a professional photographer with over 20 years' experience.

Page after page of great photography is used to illustrate all techniques. For anyone new to flash photography--or who has had a frustrating start with it--Speedliter's Handbook is a fantastic in-depth resource. Packed with information presented in a clear and approachable how-to format, this book walks readers through everything from the basics of light to advanced setups using Canon speedlites.

Syl Arena starts out familiarizing the reader with how light works and covers all the key concepts, terminology, and equipment that will serve as a foundation before jumping in. Syl then moves into all the ways speedlites can be used both on and off camera to create the best light for any given situation, whether that be portraits, wedding, sports, or macro-photography.

Speedliter's Handbook covers both manual and E-TTL flash; high-speed sync; stroboscopic flash; setups that use from one to a dozen flashes; and much more. By the end of the book, the reader will have a newfound knowledge of light and will be confident with her ability to craft that light with Canon speedlites.

Syl's blog,, has become a popular go-to resource for Canon users seeking credible information that will help them improve their photography using speedlites. In 2010, Syl will be launching a series of lighting workshops geared specifically to Canon speedlite users.
