Ready For Take Off (Strobist bokeh)

Newer Older

Boys and their toys eh? Actually it's my son's... ;) I did think about trying to capture it in flight, but that would have been too tricky I think - it's not the most stable helicopter I've come across!! Why is it after you try something new you always think of things that you could have improved? :-) I'm trying to get to know my strobes/flashes better... I do like the bokeh.

Strobist info: One SB-600 on 1/64 power, camera right pointing at helicopter, and one SB-28 on 1/32 power, camera left pointing at the background (glasses) with a blue gel.

Catch up this evening - busy busy!

HBW!
