Joe McNally - The Hotshoe Diaries

Another heads-up about an interesting-looking book for you today. This time it is an offering from the great US photographer Joe McNally, who I have written about before (most recently here).

Looking at Joe's Blog today, I came across his 26th August post which detailed his forthcoming book
Hot Shoe Diaries: Creative Applications of Small Flashes, due out in December. In his own words, HSD will be "an irreverent brain dump of my whole history using small flash, back from when I first got my hands on flash powder to the SB-900. There will be sections on buttons and dials, batteries, flash attachments, light shaping tools from gaffer tape to umbrellas, and sketches".

So if you are into your lighting, then you might want to keep an eye out for this one. And remember, this is Joe we're talking about -
if his previous book is anything to go by, this one is almost certainly going to be a great read. Needless to say I've faithfully put in my preorder already!

Again, there will be a fututre post contining my thoughts about this latest offering just as soon as I get my hands on it.
