It really is a beautiful place, isn't it.

Sorry 'bout that one. It's Christmas Eve, and I'll be spending it with the family.

Hey guys Alfred here, from San Bruno I just got my first DSLR today its a canon 60d and I'm still waiting for my 50mm 1.8 lens to arrive today (hopefully) so I can start shooting, I would love to meet people from the bay to learn from them and have fun as well. Hope to meet you guys! Merry Christmas. :)

What did everyone get for Christmas? I got me a couple circular polarizing filters and a 430 ex ii that I'm itching to use. I haven't done much indoor flash photography until recently so this should get me started with less headaches indoors.

Good deal, guys. Any recommendations for a good diffuser for the 430 ex ii?

I need to get a pair of hiking boots. Would anyone like to have someone join them for their landscape photography? Maybe the local hills, trail, mountains, or somewhere further away. I can't get to the places I would like to get to since I don't drive but I could help with gas. Not really sure how shooting with other people works but I would like to try.

Here is my only uploaded landscape photograph, taken a few days ago.

I usetje stofen as well. It works for what it's designed for. There is no denying that the Gary Fong setup works far better though.

I suppose I'll start with the no frills diffuser and maybe work my way up to the lightsphere if I feel the need or progress to that point.

yep I have one and love it. I want to get one of the photojournalist models since it takes up a lot less space.

a lot of people hate HARD on the GF's but it's a great product since you can set it on your flash and basically not have to worry about pointing your flash in the right way to bounce, you don't have to run a bracket.
BASELINE it's set and forget which = great.

also I have the stofen, and used other DIY diffusers and bounces but I go to the lightsphere much more than any modifier. (unless I'm doing a setup portrait shoot)
