A week ago, my best friend Aleks Jonca came down to Corvallis to hang out with me before school started again (ugh). He brought his friend Katie Hortenstine, as well as a brand new 5d Mark ii, brand new 580 EX ii Flash, and a ton of other ridiculous camera equipment that he NEVER uses, much to my dismay.
We realized we had three Canon Speedlites, and decided to do something about it.
I hadn’t ever used them in sync before.
The four of us went downtown and shot in an alley, and then on the bridge that takes traffic out of town over the Willamette.
The results were striking.
I really, really, really loved that I was able to shoot at night and have no problems. However, I’m somewhat torn as to whether my next investment should be another speedlite or two, or if I should spring for an Alien Bee setup and get more power, (but more cords, and more setup). Ah, decisions, decisions.
