Most of you probably already know who David Hobby is. He is a photographer, teacher and founder of the Strobist Movement, which encourages photographers to use their flashes off-of their cameras. His website Strobist is the go-to place to learn about off-camera flash techniques. His new project is HOCO360 – A Visual Journal of Howard County, Maryland, where he lives.
When David and Joe McNally decided to embark on The Flash Bus tour through the United States, I had to go. Boston was the closest of locations for me and so on April 9, I drove up to listen and watch two masters at work at the Boston Marriott Long Wharf.
Both David and Joe graciously allowed me to speak with them for a few minutes. In this post, we hear from David. He talks about creating a community and his new project.
All of this was arranged by Jeffrey Snyder of Adorama. So I am very grateful to him and the company that is truly there for photographers worldwide. Adorama is where I buy all my camera gear. Customer service is great and the price is right.

The Flash Bus tour wraps up soon, with most of the cities already sold out. The presentation in Boston was house-full. These guys not only know their stuff, they also know how to entertain. The repartees between them kept us all laughing out loud often. Now, if you can’t make it any of their last remaining presentations, please consider buying David’s Lighting In Layers DVD and Joe’s The Language of Light. You will get a sense of what it is like to be in the audience from these excellent resources. I bought them and will have a full on review here soon. [Both are affiliate links.
