If your past attempts at learning flash have all ended in failure (not to mention tears and/or blind rage), then The Off-Camera Flash Handbook is about to change everything for you. For years, photographer Vanessa Joy has been using off-camera flash to create gorgeous portraits that look like they were shot in the most beautiful natural light at the perfect time of day. Well, guess what? That consistent look was not created thanks to the most amazing luck with the weather. No. It was created by a pro photographer who mastered her use of off-camera flash. And with her down-to-earth and practical explanations, that’s exactly what Vanessa teaches you in this book.

Vanessa breaks down off-camera flash into an easy-to-understand approach, and instead of focusing on the gear and the settings (which are also included, of course), she focuses on the kinds of shots you want to make. This book is about learning to use off-camera flash easily and quickly so that you can create beautiful, natural-looking light in any situation, at any time you need it…regardless of the weather or time of day.

The book is divided into three parts. Part One covers the fundamentals of off-camera flash, and it does so without blasting you with a firehose of information. Instead, Vanessa gives you the basics you need so that you can start shooting right away without becoming overwhelmed with technical jargon.

Once you’re set up and ready to go, Vanessa jumps right into Part Two with specific photo scenarios and real-world situations where you’ll learn key techniques for using your flash to create consistent, beautiful photographs. For each scenario, Vanessa provides the goal for the shoot, a gear list, the step-by-step shooting instructions, and images that show both the progress of the shoot and the behind-the-scenes shots or lighting diagrams of the setup. She also discusses problems you may encounter, variations on the shot, and additional practical scenarios for each situation.

Just a few examples include:

    • Recreating the golden hour at any time
    • Shooting groups
    • Making indoors look like outdoors
    • Enhancing natural light
    • Using flash at events
    • Working in harsh sunlight
    • Creating silhouettes
    • Shooting at sunset
    • Fixing an ugly-light room
    • And much more

Finally, Part Three tackles the questions you’ll likely have once you’ve got the basics under your belt and you’re already creating great photos with your off-camera flash—things like high-speed sync, sync speed, a practical understanding of the inverse square law, etc. There is also a helpful FAQ section at the end of the book.

The guide then focuses on portable lighting solutions that a single photographer can use—with minimal or no assistance—to customize the given light, from on-camera flashes and monolights with battery packs to umbrellas, soft boxes, and LED video lights. Numerous examples of difficult lighting situations are offered, as well as the progression of different light sources used—both correctly and incorrectly—to capture the final photograph.

If you are a manufacturing engineer, component designer, a materials failure analyst, or if you have a general interest in the nature and prevention of engineering failures, you will be interested in the new and substantial revision of ASM Handbook, Volume 11, Failure Analysis and Prevention. The new Volume 11, with a focus on the root causes of failure, describes the principles, practices, and analytical techniques of failure analysis, so that root causes are properly identified and corrected for the ultimate objective of failure prevention. The newly reorganized Volume 11 begins with sections on the general engineering aspects of failure prevention, with coverage on fundamental root causes, materials selection, and the role of design reviews in failure prevention and analysis. Additional sections describe failures related to metals manufacturing operations, and the increasingly important role of life assessment methods in failure prevention. This is followed by a series of additional sections on the failure analysis process, as well as the principles, practices, tools, and techniques used to perform and evaluate failure analysis work, and the causes, mechanisms, appearances, and prevention methodology for the four classic types of failure (fracture, corrosion, wear, distortion). Contents include: Engineering Aspects of Failure and Prevention; Manufacturing Aspects of Failure and Prevention; Structural Life Assessment Methods; Principles and Practice of Failure Analysis; Tools and Techniques in Failure Analysis; Fracture; Corrosion Related Failures; Wear Failures; Distortion.
