Off camera gelled flash

This past weekend I changed up my off-camera lighting just a little bit than I normally have been doing. Using off-camera flashes has been part of my repertoire for quite some time now with certain bars/bands, but I never used a dome diffuser nor did I use any colored gels (even though I own both).… Continue Reading

I’ve rented the Nikon d300s this past week, along with the Nikon 17-55 2.8, the SB-900 flash and the SB-600 flash (to experiment with off-camera lighting). I’ve been considering a switch from Canon to Nikon for a long time. Here is a link to some pics I shot with the Nikon. Below are my impressions: Continue Reading
