"David Lloyd has written and produced a magnificent book containing many beautiful, inspiring images and a complete and lucid treatment of how to use off camera flash to create great environmental portraits. What is special about this book is that David provides a rich set of examples and, for each, describes his artistic reasoning & intent with complete step-by-step instructions showing how the image was achieved. The book also includes one of the best and clearest discussions of all essential lighting concepts I have seen. In my view this volume is a "must" addition to any photographer's library wanting to master environmental portraiture."

"You know, professional creatives fight all their lives to improve, to settle a style, to show their work is of a unique quality and worthy of consideration, so it is always something to celebrate when someone you know and respect reaches a true milestone in their career.
Today I wanted to put that spotlight on David Lloyd, one of the many talented photographers working at Tempe Camera Repair, and congratulate him on his new book. A truly beautiful labor of love that describes in detail what it takes to make extraordinary images when working with off-camera flash, David's exhaustive work is evident in every page as his images evoke that finished look a great many photographers strive to find in their daily grind.
Harnessing light is the essence of all photography. Controlling it is nearly a form of magic. If you're an established studio photographer looking for some helpful finesse or a student just looking to set out on the scariest journey of your professional life, there's no doubt that David has something in here for you. This book is worth picking up, no matter your skillset.
Photography challenges us at so many levels, getting a peek inside someone else's technique always inspires. David has been kind enough to share his creative process with the rest of us and I'm very pleased he did. Check it out and, sincerely, congratulations to David on the culmination of years of effort and creative burn. It's beautifully done, sir. Well played!"
