Walking on Esplanade

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

I took a walk around the neighborhood (Esplanade Ave) while I was waiting for my friends to arrive and I found some neat things to take some shots of. A cemetery, statues, some neat shadows, a park and a particularly entertaining pelican.  Have a

Strobist Experiment

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

So I’m trying my had at strobist.  For those who don’t know strobist is using speed light flashes as off camera lighting.  I bought myself a little Vivitar DF383, a lightstand and an umbrella, along with some very cheap cowboy wireless triggers.  This is the results of about 15 minutes of playing shooting a little cheapy statue from Mexico.

By the way, I can’t recommend these little cowboy triggers enough. Laugh all you want because they only cost $20 for a pair, but compare that to industry standard Pocket Wizards at $428 (on amazon) but I can go through 21 Cowboys for the cost of 1 pair of pocket wizards. They seem to work just as good and I haven’t had any problems with them.
