New dimensions in light and pretty models

I got my new flash this morning.

 

And this seems to be my 500th post.

    Pretty models, indeed – I love both photographs! Great details on the bird down to it’s tiny little talons. I want to reach through the screen and give Jess a good scritch (either behind the ears or under the neck…whichever she prefers).

      Those birds are one of the main reasons why I got the big camera, but that’s the first one I got ‘in’ the shed that’s properly lit. And where they were still during the day. Normally they flit in and out in less than a second, or so it seems.
      I get a real kick out of them nesting both under the porch and in the shed.
      And Jessy is just a brat :-).

    Hooray!
    Yes, both photos are good. I like the look of the bird with its shadow. Jess looks like she’s smiling…reluctantly.
    What is your initial review on the flash?

    • V.H says:

      Yeah, there very much is the look of “now what the hell is he pointing at me. AND WHAT’S THAT DARN NOISE”.
      The flash beeps, that’s why she’s got the quizzical look about her.
      So far I’m very pleased. It has a good solid feel about it. In fact the camera itself has more of a plasticy feel.
      I fire it by lowering the on-board flash down to 1/32, the equivalent of striking a match. You certainly cannot see it past 4-5 feet, but it’s enough to light the flash even when the sensor is facing away.

    I don’t often take pictures with flash but when you need a good flash, you need a good flash.

    • V.H says:

      Yes, and while I don’t do much indoor there are time s when I need something to pound light up into a ceiling or against the wall. And the one I got is wireless via a radio and with the on board flash on low. While not TTL enabled it can be set remotely with a transmitter and in groups so if I have it in an umbrella or light box I can change the output remotely too.
