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.

Laptops at Twenty Paces

You guys crack me up.

A few months ago, I turned one (well, the site did, anyway) and made this photo to go with the post.

Seems more than a few of you have created your own version of he shot. And there is even a Flickr group that has sprouted up to showcase the lampoons various forms of homage.

Fortunately most of the self-portraitists have much better raw material to work with than did I. So they got dat goin' for them. Which is nice.

If you want to make your own version and post it, you'll find the group here. Or you can see a slideshow of all of the previous submissions here.
