Overview

In 2009, photographer Dustin Diaz began a “365 project,” the goal of which is to shoot and share one picture per day for a year. Not only did Diaz actually complete the project–an achievement in and of itself–he consistently shared both the final image and the behind-the-scenes setup shot for that image, allowing the viewer to see how the shot was arranged. He also included information about exposure, flash power, distance, and light modifiers. The project was a huge hit that attracted thousands of followers. This Is Strobist® Info recreates and expands upon this approach by featuring an image alongside a setup shot that helpfully explains how that image was created. By showing the finished pictures as well as the setup shots for 50 of Diaz’s images, you’ll gain tons of knowledge about the basics–and beyond–of flash photography, including everything from simple one-light shots to images created with five lights and numerous gels, clamps, umbrellas, softboxes, and grids. Additionally, This Is Strobist® Info includes two chapters that guide you through the basics of starting your own lighting kit and explain the important but often-misunderstood inverse square law.

    Last night, a cat labeled only 'Ice Blue Eyes' crept into SwiftClan and told them to prepare for battle. Crowstar, the leader, has yet to know whether the cat's threat will carry out.

    DWI Battle News

    Here, you can post news about recent battles. Make sure to include lots of details, including the Who, What, Where, When, and Why. If you know it, please also include who won and the deaths.
    <br>Some battles may belong on the Breaking News. If it was recent, exciting, and unexpected, then chances are it belongs there. A Breaking News worthy battle would be something like: "A group of organized rebels attack the Revolution–and win!" A non-Breaking News worthy battle would be something like: "The Assassins attack a Clan and win, for the umpteenth time."
