The Secret Is Out – Strobist Favorites Gallery Vol. 1
After many, many months of hard work the secret I’ve been wanting to share with all of you has been revealed! Trade Secret Cards has just released the Strobist Favorites Gallery Vol. 1 – as mentioned today over on Strobist.com. The product is a set of high end trading cards. Each card in the set of 24 has a really cool images beautifully printed on UV coated thick stock. They really look great.
On the back of each card is a detailed lighting diagram along with an explanation of how the shot was made. There are a ton of different ideas and techniques in here to help you learn photography lighting techniques.
How come I got a sneak peak at the cards? Guess who the editor was for the project. Yep, me.
The set is sort of like a Strobist book or a lighting diagram and tips book with extra flair. It cuts right to the juicy bits and the whole set easily fits in your pocket or camera bag. I love the concept behind these. The intent of the set and of Trade Secrets Cards in general is to educate and inspire. I really think the Strobist Favorites Gallery Volume I is going to do just that.
Trade Secret Cards have other sets coming out that have nothing to do with photography, but if this set does well there could be a new Strobist Favorites Gallery volume each year and other photography related sets as well.
I’m very proud to be involved with this project. Check it out. I think you’ll like it.
