    :scratch: Hmmm... So not much readings...

    OK, I want to learn a bit more about:
    - tipps for better using of flash (not studio lighting)
    - bouncing or not bouncing on the wall or somewhere else and what are the effects
    - tipps for setup for wireless flash configuration
    - backlit yes/no
    - general rules/tipps for portraits
    - lot of nice examples
    - ...

    A good and detailed online guide would be also ok.

    :popcorn:

    I have this one, and it's pretty good. Look on amazon. Most of the books has reviews.
