Rolling down the west coast. Just finished the first three stops, all sold out. In SF, we triggered about 30 flashes, TTL, right from the commander on the camera. This is lighting, to be sure, but it’s also fun. Flashbus has been a hoot.
What’s even more fun has been watching David Hobby teach. He elucidates the lighting approach to a scene with such clarity and precision, it is truly amazing. I have learned a lot from him, just in these first stops, and there are still a bunch to go. He does the morning session with calm, cool direction and planning, and in the afternoon, I throw all the flashes in the air and see where they land. Someone the other day tweeted a description of my teaching style–faith in chaos. Pretty close, that.
Folks who attend are having a blast as well….from Twitter….
Big thank you 2 @theflashbus crew for the great day. @strobist + @joemcnallyphoto were brilliant! wish you all the best for the next stops!
From fakechuckwestfall:-) Ask McNally to shoot with some 580 EX II’s, and take pictures of that. We need it for Canon marketing
