Thanks. I've wanted to photograph this strainer of mine for some time and just now got around to it.

I do have a couple of questions regarding your splash set up and will mention them here in hopes you see them. If not, I'll send a pm. Do you recall what your flash power was set to? and did the two clamps for your flashes come with the splash kit or did you purchase them separately?

Also, apparently, everyone is out of the Splash Art 2 including their own website in the UK.

Yes I'm here Gene.....
I think two clamps came with the kit? Maybe...let me go look. Be right back.

Probably Helena.
I love her work.
But that type of photography, while I like to admire it I don't want to do it....that make any sense?

Yes it was Helena. It’s a unique look for sure.

Gene these are the four flash holders I have put into service.
Each is different :(
Usually I have one flash on one lab stand but shooting reflecting off the background 2 stands worked.
All flashes are the same, they look different maybe because they are at different depths in this snapshot.

Only one of the clamps, the lower left hand one was with the kit best of my memory. The others were lying around
and or taken off flash stands.

I used 1/32 power. I could have used 1/64 or 1/128 because my ISO was really low, for this shot it was ISO 160, so could
have gone way up.

You know but maybe others dont, as you go from 1/1 1/8 1/16 1/32 1/64 1/128 the flash speed gets faster and faster BUT at the
same time you have less light from each flash.....how to get more light but keep the speed up? You add more flashes. Back when using
EOS flashes and Yongnuos I found that four flashes was plenty. I think Carrie White (highly suggest you spend the $15.00 for her book) also uses 3 or four.
Also when you diminish the flash output you get more flashes. On two double A's (the Godox TT350S each take two double A's) we got over 1400 shots :) Now I'm recently learning that Godox has the same form factor as the TT350S but with rechargeable lithium inside.....we will go through a 20 pack of Durecells if we shoot two nights consecutively.

If you need more detailed photos of each flash holder just say the word.

your going to love it

Do the print quality of that can compete with lab prints? might be a good idea for prints 4x6, 5x7 and 8x10 at least.

Would appreciate some feedback of your opinions on the best poses for butterflies. I like that #3 maximizes the showiness of the wings, but it's flat compared to #4. I like both, but am not sure which works best.

I applied for SPS awhile back and got accepted a few days later. Well didn't get around to actually calling and paying, etc. until today. Called, paid, all was good. Then the rep says, "We're trying to order in new supplies for our physical welcome packs. As soon as we do that we'll Fedex it to you, but I don't know when that will be. However all your membership benefits are active as of right now." I told him that was not an issue, which is isn't. I don't care that much about that. Then he says, "Typically, we would assign you a membership number, but we're going through a bit of a transitional period, so we're not doing that right now, but we'll be assigning you a number soon." Again, I said no problem, but I'm starting to think they don't really have it together over at Sony Pro Support.

I had been meaning to call and sign up for a membership for awhile, but the thing that really reminded me is I own one of the Sony a9 units that has the hotshoe recall, and at the last event I was doing the hotshoe started coming loose. So while I'm on the phone with him I figured I'd kill two birds with one stone, and told him about it, as well as an event I have coming up this weekend. I asked him if I could get a loner unit while my a9 was in the shop in case I didn't get my camera back in time for the event. That's something that is included in SPS. His response, "Typically yes, we would be able to send out a loner. But unfortunately we don't have any right now. We're completely out." Now I'm starting to get concerned, so I asked him if he could send me a similar camera as a loner, like the a7Riii. "I would, but we're completely out of those too," he said. I got a little frustrated and told him that if my a9 isn't back in time for the event I would be shooting it on an a6500, and the main reason I signed up for SPS was for the loners in case I needed them. He said he understood, and would see what he could do about it.

So overall it was a bit frustrating, and now I'm nervous about receiving my camera back in time for this event on Saturday.

Thats shocking! anyways it should not take long to replace a few screws! thats all they do for the hot shoe mount

Is anyone on this group using or has used the Sony 70-200 F 2.8 GM that could share thier thought on? I'm thinking about picking up a 70-200 and I'm undecided between the Sony or just adapting the Canon version of the lens. The Canon is significantly cheaper right now ( 30% )but I'm not sure I want to go down the adapter rabbit hole with Canon again after selling most of my Canon lenses. I know initial tests weren't that favourable however view of the IQ of this lens seem to be all over the map.

Thought or comments would be appreciated.

ive used the canon 70-200 with the metabones for outdoor portrait work and it performed really well!

Strainer? Very cool. I actually thought it was a microphone - not that it matters.

I would say my 13x19 prints are "as good" as what I get from Bay or the one Zenfolio uses
