Crazy Burning Man Strobist
Just when I think I may be starting get the hang of this creative photography strobist thing, I see someone who takes the term "strobist" to the next level. Eric Schwabel is a professional photog who decided to take some serious photographic hardware to Burning Man. Burning Man is some crazy art gathering in the middle of an ancient dry lake bed in the desert (that is a horrible explanation, but it's all I got). Temps hover around 107 F, and the dust is enough to make my weather sealed Pentax K7 beg the almighty for forgiveness within minutes. Regardless, this guys getup is too much for words, as are the amazing portraits he captured. If you've got 5 min., it's more than worth viewing.
