Studio Lighting Lending Library | Strobist Article

Just read this new article from Dave Hobby and I can't get over how brilliant the idea he listed in the bottom paragraph really is! Here is a link to the article:

I've copied the last paragraph from his article below (hopefully he won't sue me for posting it):

The kicker is that while the lights would be free to check out, you'd have to turn in a photo and full BTS write-up from your shoot every time you used them. So within a year, you'd not only have a good gear closet but also a location- and gear-specific knowledge bank to teach your fellow students how to use the best studio of all.

I only wish that photography schools everywhere did this.  It did get my wheels turning as to how I could try to implement something like this on a small scale even with the minimal gear that I have.
