When I completed Strobist as a project in 2021, I promised to check back in when I had something worth sharing. Today, I’m announcing my new book, The Traveling Photographer’s Manifesto, which seeks to do for traveling photographers what Strobist always tried to do for lighting photographers.

Thanks for giving it a look—and for your comments and feedback.

Next, They'll be Using Nitro

Not ones to settle for limited performance from the much-talked-about cheapo eBay flash remotes, some Strobist readers are souping them up.

Check out this Flickr Strobist thread for a how-to on swapping power sources (AAA's good, exotic batts bad) and swapping the antenna for a reported extended range of 200 feet.


One thing to consider: You could be breaking the law by adding a six-inch piece of wire to the cheap remote transmitters. While technically you would only be breaking the law for 1/250th of a second per shot, keep an eye out for the black helicopters.

(I'm just saying.)
