Strobox Volume 2 (Softcover)
Photography Lighting Instruction Book
by Janis Lanka
About the Book
The fall of 2009 brought the concept of Strobox to life through an iPhone app. In 2010, we created a community site to share the diagrams generated by the app. In 2011 we published our first book. And only less than a year later, you are holding our 2nd volume of hopefully something of an annual tradition. It contains a selection of fifty of the most amazing and popular photos shot by just as many talented community members from every category you can imagine.
The main difference in this book is that we asked photographers to provide more detailed background and technical stories that are not available on our website. Photos were chosen from much bigger pool of those submitted during 2011 and Mark Wallace helped to curate and select those that would make it in this book.
Similar to our previous volume, Strobox vol. 2 seeks to showcase our community’s achievements, acknowledge our top contributors, and most importantly, help us financially sustain our online community. We’re also sharing the book’s profit amongst every photographer who joined us for this initiative and whose work you can see in the pages of this book.

Lighting is one of the key factors to consider when taking a good photo. And even though we all know a great shot when we see one, it’s often difficult to understand just how it was lit. Until now, photos didn’t come with details of the lighting scheme. Our solution is to provide a place for all types of photographers to share how they set up that amazing photo. When you learn something, we’ve done well!
