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.

Cool, Warts-and-All Photo Video

Chase Jarvis, whom you may recall from the ubercool photo laptop briefcase he designed, is at it again.

Assigned to shoot a series of videos for the Hasselblad "Master" series (go on ahead witcha bad self, Chase) he compiled every shot he made into a flipbook video to show the process behind the photos.

This is very cool. It is a quick way to watch the progression of how he thinks. He even has lighting test shots in there, too.

Honestly, I am a little surprised that he shoots as few frames as he does. He quickly progresses to the photo he is looking for. I, on the other hand, tend to burn frames like there is no tomorrow.

I guess that is the difference between a wannabe and a Master...
