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.

    Wonderful work here.
    Great lighting and pose.

    Marcy! cool tones here with the cross process. And nice work with the strobe. That is something I don't have and it would be fun to improve my lighting! Love the perspective and that 'come hither' look! :))

    Your picture is crooked ... :-)
  • thephotographymuse 7y

    Crooked? Maybe it's just the photo. j/k Thanks! That'll teach me to post so late at night! I'll reload with Photopharell's crop.

    Yes... you are very decorative.
    Would like to have such a bedspread. :)
    I like the faded imperfect look of this.

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

    I liked it off-kilter! You're always messin' with stuff.....mumble mumble mumble.....
  • Garry Wilmore 7y

    Two comments: (1) Why the heck am I only the second person to fave this one? (2) I read your description, which includes your warning that we should prepare to be sick of you. If that's the case, bring it on! I want you to make me really, REALLY sick, as I had no idea until that sickness could be so pleasant and charming! :-)

    I love the editing and tones. I also like the expression.
