There’s No Biz Like Strobist

I get a few emails every week asking me about strobist stuff.  What to buy, what equipment do I use, how to trigger off camera flashes, etc.  I can answer those questions.  The thing is, I have no idea how I get the light I get sometimes.  It's tricky.  You're dealing...
