J is for .....

Jim.... or Just an old fart who needs stupid reading glasses to survive. I hate the damn things.


The glasses come at ~£10 for 3 pairs from Costco.... Not worth spending more as I am pretty careless and abusive with them.


Simple shot today - just a couple of minutes playing with the Nikon CLS on my SB900. I use my Bowens studio strobes so much on fully manual that I rarely use the "Creative Lighting System" for the speedlight - shame really as it is pretty phenomenal. Took this at 1/1250 sec f16 to eliminate all the ambient light (lots as it is mid afternoon), dialed the SB900 down slightly so I wouldn't blow out the skin tones & pushed the shutter. One shot, near perfect light. Must take advantage of this more often.
