More New Decor!!

On me and a bedroom! Wheeee!!!


I have several shoots coming up that will require me to get better at early mornings, or I need to work on my off camera lighting techniques. I spent a little time determining how well I could do a shoot with my current lighting setup, 2 Canon 430EX and one Cactus V2 transmittter and receiver + pc sync cord. I realized that I needed to take the plunge and invest in a reliable trigger for my 430's. What good are two slaves and a transmitter that is only halfway dependable and useless at shutter speeds over 200?


I've got just a pocket wizard Plus II and a 580EX on the way along with a few light stands and clamps. I will probably do another self-portrait study as I test it all.


I will definitely be attending the upcoming photoventure meeting where Paul D'Andrea teaches beginning strobists like me how it's done!


Be prepared to be sick of me though. ;) I'm my best subject.
