I'm glad you find my blogs useful, and thank you for your inputs. I recommend you read them in their numbered order, as I sometimes refer back to things I discussed in earlier articles.
I enjoy writing these articles for myself as much as others. It is where I put all the info I have learned about the Nikon flash system over the years, much of which was not documented well anywhere else. In fact many of the early books about CLS had some pretty serious mistakes. Then, when I want to remember the details about something, I go back and read my own articles.
I write these articles under the assumption that the reader has very little understanding about CLS but a fair amount of general photography knowledge and experience, so I dig into the the CLS and lighting areas in minute detail while leaving the rest to Nikonians Forums and Google.
For instance, I assume the average reader will know about the Gary Fong Light Sphere, but that he/she won't really understand the differences between TTL and TTL-BL. So far, this assumption has proven to be correct for the most part. However, I do answer a lot of much more basic questions in the comments after the blog and by email.
Please feel free to email questions or feedback to me or post in the comments areas.
