A how-to photo blog worth a visit


Why I need to read Strobist. This is my attempt to take a picture of a sculpture by Frank Vagnone. As you can see, I failed to overcome the lighting situation. Frank's work is up at the Crane Arts Center, in the awful little hallway with the two urinals.

Just when you’re thinking, oh, no, not another blog, here comes one that makes you say, yes! another blog!

The blog is Strobist, and I just learned of it, thanks to Murray and an article in the Philadelphia Weekly about the future of journalism, by Temple prof G.W. Miller III.

Strobist, by David Hobby, is aimed at people who take photographs. So who doesn’t? It has a deep mix of info about using (and selecting) small, off-camera flashes.

The site, which offers lighting tips, inspirational images and news on the latest gadgets, quickly developed a loyal following. Hobby now gets about 1.5 million page hits a month and recently topped 2.5 million in unique visitors.

So, like I said, who doesn’t take photographs?

While the blog is aimed at people who are more serious than I am, even this duffer found some food for thought (oh I’d rather read about how to solve problems than actually solve them, I guess). Anyway, read and learn!
