Well, I have gotten a few new camera toys to play around with these last few weeks. Being a Sony shooter, I tend to run into a few problems have certain items “fit” my camera. One of them being Pocket Wizards. After doing days and days of research, I found Lon at Flash Zebra.com. He fixed all my problems!! I was able to get a few adapters and even some brackets to fit my flash/umbrella to my light stands. I finally could do some off-camera lighting!! THANKS LON, you rock!!
Now, off to my first test…I did a little off-roading tonight to find the perfect cactus at sunset in the desert. Well, I found one, but it was so tall I had NO chance of getting that darn Santa hat on it. So, I had to go find a much smaller one. As you can see from the pic above, the cactus I wanted to use is in the background. This was my very first attempt at off camera lighting. Probably not the most technically perfect photo, but I kind of like how it turned out. Enjoy!
