P&P Blogger Profile: David Hobby
When I was younger, I always had unselfish mentors. I still do. Now, the internet makes it possible to pay the next generation forward on a much larger scale.
Not a fair question. I read about 50 blogs a day. But okay, I’ll bite. Consumerist, ProBlogger and WhatTheDuck
Since I was 8.
Nikon D2Xs, Nikon D2Hs, Canon G7
You’re kidding, right? Mac, forever.
What is your favorite piece of photo or computer equipment (other than your camera)?
Nikon SB-26 speedlight.
Nothing, really. I have a core bag of glass and small flashes that I have shot with for a long time. No reason to change, other than to upgrade bodies.
Shoot constantly. Study and reverse-engineer the techniques of shooters whom you admire. Major in something other than photography to bring something external to your profession.
Honestly, I do not know. Other than the fact that it is a very satisfying thing to do.
Do not let fear of the unknown keep you from experiencing new things.
Paris. For a year.
More family time.
Fluency in many languages.
What is your favorite word? Imagination.
What is your least favorite word? Worry.
What turns you on? Travel.
What turns you off? Constricted thinking.
What sound or noise do you love? My kids’ singing.
What sound or noise do you hate? An alarm clock.
What is your favorite curse word? Dammit.
What occupation other than your own would you like to attempt? I have never regretted being a photographer, so I have never given other careers a second thought. Is that weird?
What occupation would you not want to participate in? Anything that required my living in a suit and tie.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates? What took you so long?
