David Hobby, who teaches lighting to photographers via his website Strobist.com, recently released an 8-DVD set of his lighting seminars. Whether you're an amateur or a professional photographer, you HAVE to get this DVD set if you want to understand how to use small flashes to really improve your images. There's nearly 10 HOURS of material here!
I had ordered this DVD set as soon as I heard about it. Unfortunately, our local post office had a break in and my package was among those that were stolen. Since it was shipped via Priority Mail, there is no chance of recovery.
I mentioned this in a Flicker discussion group and David Hobby caught wind of it. The next thing I know, he sends me a replacement copy out his own pocket! This guy really wants people to learn how to light!
I received it a few days ago and have been watching it nonstop ever since. There is so much good information in it and I;m learning so much that my brain is starting to melt.
