Lighting in Layers with David Hobby DVD 1 of 7
Photographer David Hobby of Strobist.com follows up his Lighting Seminar DVD Set (May 2008) with Lighting in Layers, a series of real-world, behind-the-scenes assignments lit entirely with small flashes.
The 7-DVD, 9-hour boxed set includes six extended, detailed location shoots, paired with related lighting diagrams, which include walk-throughs and immersive discussions.
In addition, there is a running set of discussions on other topics. Those include finding your compass point as a photographer, gaining access to the people and things you want to photograph, adding value to your community and building a sustainable business model in the age of the web.
As a 20-year staff newspaper photojournalist -- and more recently, a widely-read blogger at Strobist -- Hobby also explains in detail how he combines those skills to create a unique ecosystem in which he can thrive as a self-directed photographer
