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.

Home Depot Week: Foil-Backed Tape

The first time I saw this stuff, the word, "coool" involuntarily escaped my lips: Aluminum foil. And tape. All mashed together.

Okay, the possibilities for light mods here are pretty much endless. Ringlight internals, beauty dishes, custom macro reflectors -- go nuts. The stuff is pretty cheap, too, depending on how big your project is.

HD has is by the 30' x 1.89" roll for $2.27. Or you can get it here, too. (Scroll down.)

I am curious to see what ideas you might have in store for this. Hit us in the comments.
