  • Great post, Dan. I’m bookmarking this page. I’ve had a 430 EX for a couple of years and have been happy with it and it meets my current needs. Still, thinking about getting another one to help with my creative concept noir photography. I don’t have a wireless transmitter though, and use Zebra off-camera cords. This, along with a small Photoflex softbox gives me a lot of bang for my buck, especially as I’m still learning off-camera flash (read Syl’s book…heck, I’m IN the book and it’s a big help.)

    After reading this, though, wondering if I should get another 430 and possibly the ST-E2 for some more creative options.

    Good stuff, though. Thanks again for this one. ~ Mark

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
