My delivery of flash-related kit turned up today. I have a big L plate on my back now as I want to properly learn about being a strobist (please let me strobe you…)
I am now a proud owner of a light stand, flash holder, white umbrella, a cheap lightbox thingy, two transceivers and a wireless remote. I read the instructions like a good boy, but they just tell you how to work it, not how to do it. So I am now going to get into a couple of books I have kicking about concerning flash photography and the strobist sites that have been recommended.
I did have a little play with Jnr Jnr as a model though, so we went over to the man room to utilise the projection wall. She asked to have a go on my electric guitar – well, why not! I even changed the battery in my old wah-wah pedal so she could play with that too. All I can say is, it is a good thing that photographs do not some with sound :)
We also had a little play with fast shutter synch. Very mixed results, but that looks fun. Need to read up……
