Coastal Camera Club Program Meeting
March 11, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
David Hobby March 11, 2020
An American photographer and author of the Strobist.com lighting blog, a site which promotes lighting techniques — such as off-camera flash — among photographic enthusiasts, often with an emphasis on the practical knowledge rather than the gear. The blog has an on-line monthly readership of over 300,000 photographers from 175 countries, and was named one of the "25 Best Blogs of 2010" by Time Magazine. Until July 2008, Hobby was a staff photojournalist with The Baltimore Sun.
In June 2007, he took a year-long leave of absence from The Sun to blog full-time. On August 3, 2008, Hobby announced in a posting on his blog that he had taken a buyout from The Sun along with about one hundred staffers who left the paper at that time. He explained, "There was a hard staff reduction quota in effect, and given the way the blog has gone I thought it would be best if I counted toward it when they started lopping off heads..." Hobby said he planned to use the blog as a platform from which to explore various photographic projects.
A Jumpstart Course in Small-Flash Lighting
In my program, A Jumpstart Course in Small-Flash Lighting, participants will get a solid introduction to, and overview of, the principles of additive lighting and balancing electronic flash with ambient light. We’ll also explore the step-by-step building of multiple-light setups and working in non-daylight lighting environments. By the time we finish, participants will be comfortable with the basics of artificial lighting. They’ll be ready to begin—or extend—their own journey as lighting photographers.
