David Hobby, the famous creator of 'Strobist' is known world over. With that in mind, as soon as 'The Flash Centre' announced his tour of the UK my ticket was purchased within a matter of minutes. A one day seminar, based around using small light sources and balancing them correctly to produce your desired look ranging from natural to dramaticly lit portraits. The morning consisted of a presentation, with questions fired back and forth between David and the audience. This created a great rapport between everyone and gave a relaxed open atmosphere to the day.
In the afternoon, the format shifted from discussion to live demonstrations. Below is a photograph of Dave taking a shot and then analysing it on the tethered projector. Really interesting to see how he works, interacts and builds his shots.
The Brunswick Gallery even had celebrity guest appearances in the form of Drew Gardner, but where's his PhaseOne!? :D
It was a pleasure to meet both Drew and David on the day. If your lucky, you might be able to catch David at his last few locations on the UK tour. Highly recommended!
