Joe McNally
For the past three decades, photographer Joe McNally has been documenting our times on assignment for publications like LIFE, Time, National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, and many others. Highly regarded as a master of light, both natural and artificial, Joe continues to create stunning imagery all over the world. Much sought after as a photographer, lecturer, and teacher, Joe educates and inspires shooters of all types--pros, hobbyists and beginners--with The Language of Light.

In this DVD set, Joe shares almost 30 years worth of field knowledge, instruction, and philosophy about using light as a powerful tool of visual communication. He fully explores and explains different lighting techniques, and goes well beyond the "how" all the way through the "why," of using light. Small flash, hard light, soft light, light with color, light in the studio, and light on location are all dissected and explained. You see and hear all about the f-stops, shutter speeds, lenses and light shaping tools, and you are taken further into the reasons why a one lighting approach is better than another for certain scenes, faces or groups. All along the way, Joe offers tips, tricks and solutions that can only be gained from 30 years with a camera to your eye. Sit back, relax and enjoy as this legendary shooter takes you on a fast paced, humorous, and always informative journey about how to speak with light.

David Hobby
Photographer David Hobby of follows up his Lighting Seminar DVD Set (May 2008) with Lighting in Layers, a series of real-world, behind-the-scenes assignments lit entirely with small flashes.

The 7-DVD, 9-hour boxed set includes six extended, detailed location shoots, paired with related lighting diagrams, which include walk-throughs and immersive discussions.

In addition, there is a running set of discussions on other topics. Those include finding your compass point as a photographer, gaining access to the people and things you want to photograph, adding value to your community and building a sustainable business model in the age of the web.

As a 20-year staff newspaper photojournalist -- and more recently, a widely-read blogger at Strobist -- Hobby also explains in detail how he combines those skills to create a unique ecosystem in which he can thrive as a self-directed photographer.

The first six DVDs are standard discs which are meant to play in any standard DVD player. The seventh disc is a DVD-ROM which contains compressed files of all of the content from the first six discs. They are formatted be dragged (in whole or part) to a portable media player such as an iPod touch or iPhone or Android devices via iTunes or other similar software. The portable media files are formatted as h.264, for minimum size and maximum compatibility with other portable devices, such as Android phones.
