Hey Phil , just read about your Nov 30th spill , glad all is good , and thanks for all your input

Thanks. My progress has been remarkable so far but I still have some things to improve upon yet. The cause appears to be from the interaction of two medications. I'm walking about 1/4 mile/day and I walked a mile on Sunday. It's hard to believe that only 3 weeks ago I was in the hospital and not allowed to stand without a belt around my chest, a walker in front of me and an aid to keep me from falling.

Don't wait to start living.

I had no idea. It's good you'll have a full recovery, and hopefully you will sooner rather than later.

I'm 56 and on 4 blood pressure meds and 2 cholesterol meds, so I'm keenly aware that you need to watch these things closely and not ignore any little sign of trouble. It's all very scary stuff. And, you are absolutely right on that last statement - it goes fast and can end when you are least expecting it.

Take care and I wish you the best.

You don't have to quit working. It's more important to just keep in mind what is important and what is not, spend time with those that mean something to you, and always be respectful of others.

And, come on up to shoot sometime. You don't need a 1DX, you can even use an iPhone. Just do it and have fun. Heck, I offered to carry your gear for the state football finals, but you turned me down! :lol:

Ahhh .....

Bounced or head on?

The lighting is great without the harsh shadows often seen with strobed shots.

These were 4 bounced Alien Bee B800s that were set up by my friend Mark Weaver. He was gracious enough to let me borrow a few flashes. Normally, I'd shoot at f/4.0 and ISO 400 but here I decided to play with the exposure settings.

Damn Phil, I didn't know about your stroke. All the best in your recovery. Hoping you get back out shooting and, as usual, showing us all how its done. :)

Thanks for the kind words. I'm limiting myself to fun only shoots for January and February while I work on my physical therapy. So far, the progress is far better than I have a right to expect.:D

How distracting or noticeable are these strobes in the middle of the game? Is it something that the players or spectators ever complain about? Our high school gym has some really good spots to set some up, but I don't know if they would be allowed or even who to ask.

I strobe most of my basketball. Most people don't even notice the flash. Not a single player I have talked to has ever noticed them.

I notice them myself when I go to an event where somebody is using strobes. Likely because of my experience using strobes. But they are never distracting.
