Overview

Learn to light your photographs creatively using small flashes and other lighting gear with 24 inspiring examples from contributors to David Hobby’s famed Web site, Strobist.com. On the reverse side of each photo you’ll find a lighting diagram and helpful tips. Tear out individual cards and take them with you for quick reference on your next shoot.

Strobist Photo Trade Secrets volumes 1 and 2 are all about giving you the inspiration and tools to help make your photographs the best they can be. It doesn’t take hundreds of pages of instructions or piles of complicated theories to take great photographs. Photo Trade Secrets use microlessons—each with a simple-to-understand diagram, tips, and a clear description accompanying an inspiring image—so you can spend less time reading and more time shooting.

Photo Trade Secrets postcard books are high-quality trade paperbacks, with perforated pages of thick card stock—so you can simply tear them out and take individual microlessons with you when you shoot.

Whether you duplicate the photos in the book or use the techniques as a takeoff point for creating your own dynamic family photos, killer commercial shots, or eyecatching masterworks, you’ll find Photo Trade Secrets to be the fastest, most fun and effective way to take your photography to the next level.

Grab your Photo Trade Secrets and get out there and shoot!

It shows you how to get great lighting with house lamps, cheap strobes, umbrellas, gels, reflector cards and other common household items. As a bonus, it inspires you with creative ways to use these techniques."
