    Ok my only experience with flash photography is popping up the inbuilt flash on a new camera and making sure it works. So can anybody recommend a good book or website that can ease me into flash photography.

    Thanks

    Strobist is NOT the easiest thing to get through, I don't care how many pimp the site. It is ridiculously cluttered as far as content goes. However if you wanted a good jump off point do the 2nd Series of exercises on the website "Lighting: 102". It provides an ok starting point, but they seriously need a copy editor.

    When I browsed around the Strobist website, I also thought it was very disorganized. It is written like a blog rather than an informative site.

    Another thing I noticed is I could only find info after reading how I needed this, this, this, that, this, that, that, and this. I have a single optical slave flash that I must trigger with my popup flash (just a superzoom and cheap slave) and that site is absolutely no help because I need thousands of spare cash laying around to do anything.

    Site is always recommended, but it seems to only be useful to rich people.

    yeah strobist IS a blog so it's organisation could improve a fair bit.. but the quality of the information is very good. Just sometimes hard to find stuff and a bit heavy to read etc.

    For on-camera flash photography techniques this web site is excellent.
