Professional photographer Barry Staver explores techniques for designing effective lighting setups with flash by beginning with an overview of fundamental techniques, then teaching readers how to go beyond the basics and refine their images to perfection through the careful addition of flash. Applications of each of the three major categories of flash equipment are covered, first with electronic flash techniques for location shoots, then mid-range strobes for studio work and location shots, and finally heavy-duty strobes that provide the ultimate in power and control for studio photography.
Additional aspects of light instruction include balancing flash with ambient lighting and choosing and using light modifiers, as well as a bevy of before-and-after images to help photographers cover all of their lighting options and know how they can be implemented to their greatest effect.

Studio & Location Lighting Secrets for Digital Photographers [Book]
A ring flash is one that fits around the lens — it creates a wonderfully unique lighting effect. They will usually lighten your wallet by a couple of hundred dollars. If you want to experiment with other methods of making DIY ring flashes you also might want to check out this post for another method.
This one is a little more involved, but I think will probably get better results. Subscribe to our newsletter to get more weekly Digital Photography tips like this. Have you ever wanted to replicate the crisp clean product images that you see in catalogs with the products seemingly floating on a white background? As usual, light boxes can cost you quite a bit — but thanks to DPS reader Jeffrey Bail you might be able to achieve the results without having to spend much at all. In our Inexpensive Light Tent tutorial Jeffrey shows you how to turn a box, fabric, tape, glue board and light into a great little light tent.
It allows you to bounce some light off the ceiling while also diffusing the light going forward — this will enable you to get a less harsh flash effect that many flashes leave images with. I like this one as it pushes the light out from your flash in two directions which can lead to a more even light rather than just diffusing it — a little more sophisticated.
Another quick DIY on diffusing a flash is to put a little translucent magic tape over a flash or a piece of white tissue paper can do it too. Any of these methods will decrease the amount of light getting out from the flash onto your subject — hopefully resulting in a more subtle light and a less blown out image.
