Ricky rated it really liked it Aug 05, Will it help the noob? Paulduke rated it liked it Oct 10, Heather rated it it was ok May 08, And sure, there are other professional photographers who are just as inspirational, but for me, Dustin Diaz was someone I can relate to because he was a normal guy trying to learn for himself and improve.
Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. And this may rub some people off the wrong way.
Also, a few technical pages on light and inverse square. And I was pretty excited that he would take his time to show people how he accomplished these shots.
Unfortunately, he does not explain inverse square rule well enough for many beginner photographers to follow.

You get the picture. Where did you position your flash? A few of his photos would also be recommended by Flickr. As much as I would love to have had the top-of-the line lens, the best off camera flash and strobes, my mindset was not there yet.
It could have used more discussion but maybe I glossed over it of what each light brought to image — I knew it was a fill light or a rim light, etc, but beginners might not rea It was interesting to see the list of gear Dustin recommends and his quick introduction to lighting physics, but the real value for an advanced strobist is the beautifully stylized photos and setup diagrams — there’s a lot of inspiration to be found there, and I’ll probably flip through that section before every shoot.
Granted, I know that the goal was to show a full page of the original shot and the Strobist setup shot, but perhaps having the full shot and a shot of the setup maybe smaller or cropped but with a paragraph of comments would have been nice. On Projectfor one photo, he talked about losing a clamp and a flash because it was stolen.
But people wonder, are there people watching his equipment when he takes his photo in the streets somewhere in the Bay Area? Mark Beauchamp rated it liked it Feb 07, Text Mess marked it as to-read Oct 26, And gradually overtime, seeing how his technique would improve while taking these pictures.

George rated it really liked it Mar 14, Dustin is just a normal guy who is still learning, but yet sharing what he learned from his own personal experience and sharing it with the world and inspiring thousands of people.
How Dustin Diaz Lights His Shots
He also included information about exposure, flash power, dustiin, and light modifiers. The setup shot would often show his flash stand with an umbrella, the flash used and at one brightness and zoom and whether or not he used a CTO Gel to add color. I feel like this would be a great book for inspiring younger photographers to use different lighting setups and give them a starting place to try new things.
