Day 39/365 - Strobist starter kit

Once upon a time was a man called David Hobby, yeah we all know the guy, he's pretty amazing, love his stuff and what he teaches.


The man once said... get a cheap sb-24 second hand for 30 bucks, a tripod and a cable to trigger your off-shoe flash... i thought yep, cheap stuff... Damn...


Now what i didn't know is that it was so darn addictive. Start with 1 strobe, go to the 2nd hand shop and find another one for 30$ and then another one, get 4 cactus wizards, your lenses, now i'm missing some tripods to hold all the stuff, and an umbrella yep there is one for this shot upper right of camera... but it's translucid what about the dark one to reduce light bouncing on the walls uh...


Nahh seriously ... and what about a trip to the US to follow the FlashBus with Him and Joe McNally... darn that would be awsome but dishing out 600$ for a 350$ workshop and DVD's makes it just damn impossible...


Please helpppppppp meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee !!! :)


PS : Mr David Hobby Aka The Strobist i actually am very grateful for what i'm learning and discovering but just so bummed that i can't come to the US to follow a couple of workshops for FlashBusTour & Onelight from Zack Arias ..
