David Hobby is a 20-year career newspaper shooter. He studied photojournalism at the University of Florida and has worked for the Leesburg (FL) Commercial, the Orlando (FL) Sentinel, UPI, and lots of other publications as a freelancer/stringer/intern. He has been a staff photographer at Patuxent Publishing (Columbia, MD) from ’88-’99 and at The Baltimore (MD) Sun. He currently shoots editorial and institutional assignments.
On his blog, Hobby is simply known as the The Strobist. His posts are focused on learning how to use off-camera flash to take your photos to the next level. Or the next ten levels. There is so much great information on this site, I wouldn’t begin to be able to summarize it all here, but if you’re interested in low-budget lighting with hand-held off camera flashes, this blog is your one-stop-shop. From sharing the inspirational work of others, to reviews of the latest flash gear, to a basic intro to lighting, you’ll only find the best advice and knowledge regarding lighting for photojournalists.
The Strobist blog could be thought of as a lighting idea bank, run by and for the most enthusiastic DSLR photographers. According to the site, there are over 250,000 regular readers, and the discussion group has more than 40,000 members, all of them sharing ideas and techniques for small-flash lighting.
