The Nikon Creative Lighting System, 2nd Edition
Using the SB-600, SB-700, SB-800, SB-900, SB-910, and R1C1 Flashes



Mike Hagen opens up a whole new world to those photographers who are already well versed in photography, but may not have a clue about flash photography.

With the new and rapidly evolving technology, flash photography (especially advanced light modeling with modern iTTL flash systems) has become an art in itself and should be mastered by all aspiring photographers-amateurs as well as professionals-who are often helpless when it comes to using the full potential of these systems.

Using a simple, step-by-step method for setting up and using the newest Nikon iTTL flash units, Mike teaches all the steps required to achieve consistent and amazing flash photos. He solves the common frustrations associated with flash, and specifically teaches how to use the SB-600, SB-700, SB-800, SB-900, SB-910, and R1C1 strobes. Also included is a chapter showing system configuration so readers can duplicate the desired results on their own.

Beginning at a basic level and progressing to more advanced techniques, Mike teaches you everything you need to know about mastering Nikon's iTTL flash system.

Nikon Camera Setup Guides
Since so many of you have been asking for one-page setup guides for the Nikon digital SLR cameras, we created them for the D300, D70, D80, D200 and D2X! You can download the pdf for free (below) or you can send us $6.50 and we'll mail you a laminated card right away. Price includes shipping to USA addresses.

Payment options are:
- Send $6.50 via Paypal to mike@outthereimages.com
- Send in a personal check to:
Out There Images, Inc.
PO Box 1966
Gig Harbor, WA 98335

About the Setup Guides
These guides were created to describe how I recommend setting up your camera for various shooting scenarios such as Landscape, Sports, Travel, Portraits, Weddings and Point & Shoot. There are lots of opinions out there for how people should adjust their cameras, so please use these as a starting point. Over time, you will find a setup that you like and it will probably be different from mine. That's a good thing!

Each setup guide was designed so that you can print it out on a single 8.5"x11" piece of paper. You'll have to put the paper through your printer two times in order to have it print on front and back. The Nikon D800, D4, D7000, D90, D700, D3, D300, D200, D80 and D2X guides have one table for each shooting scenario. Enjoy!
