View Photo Gallery and Lighting Diagrams on Strobox - Create, Share, Learn

Message from the Strobox team In 2009 we created a unique iPhone app to document your photography lighting setups. Our bigger vision was to one day create a community where photographers could share their knowledge, experience, and learn from those on the front lines. That dream came true in 2010 when we launched our Strobox website. Today, we have more than 38,000 unique monthly visitors - from all corners of the globe - we never expected Strobox to grow so quickly and are now facing the need to seek additional support. Until now everything has been run by our amazing community of volunteers, who not only donated their time but also chipped in financially to help cover hard costs like hosting fees, development support, legal fees, etc. We believe in our community, the talent pool we have, and how we can become better when we share information. Sincerely, Janis Lanka Strobox Founder

Thomas Barbèy’s astounding surrealism Today, everyone’s a photographer, grabbing their iPhones for a quick snap. Pictures are posted at a moment’s notice on Facebook and Instagram, so there’s never a void of visuals. Perhaps this image saturation is why surreal photo manipulation is particularly intriguing; smartphone cameras and social networking can’t hold a candle to an artist’s vivid imagination. One such visionary is veteran photographer Thomas Barbèy. Raised in Geneva before working for 15 years in Milan, this inspirational artist has spent more than 20 years perfecting his craft. Colorful Liquid Splashes Captured at 1/3500th of a Second Look Like Floating Sculptures Cassandra Warner and Jeremy Floto of Floto+Warner Studio recently produced this beautiful series of photos titled Clourant that seemingly turns large splashes of colorful liquid into glistening sculptures that hover in midair. The photos were shot at a speed of 1/3,500th of a second, taking special care to disguise the origin of each burst making images appear almost digital in nature (the duo assures no Photoshop was used). They share about the project: Colourant is a series of events that pass you by as an imperceptible flash. A fleeting moment, that blocks and obscures the landscape, a momentary graffiti of air and space. Creating shapes of nature not experienced by the human eye, these short-lived anomalies are frozen for us to view at 3500th of a second.
