That would be a good subliminal way to sneak you wanter mark in to people's minds but no its the row of windowsthat was behind me. I didnt notice it at the time but I do see that it is a less then ideal look. Sharp eyes my friend

Heya,

Today's the first day in over a week that it wasn't raining here in Florida. Wet summer. But with rain comes flowers in my yard, so we figured we better try and use it before it gets nasty out again. Late day, but we couldn't stay up too late, doesn't get dark till 9pm these days when you have a 3 year old. We try to do some photos in the flowers yearly before we bale the hay in the field. Used some new gear today, went away from large modifiers and started playing with larger more efficient reflectors to really get more light from a distance from my strobe, doing more groups. Been practicing with it. It's a cheap $48 10" reflector (I tested & reviewed it here if interested). Helps me get more power (or more efficiency in my case) when in HSS with some distance to the subject. I was worried it would be really hard light. But kid's skin can soak it up apparently. Will try a group soon.

6pm in the field here in Florida. A little stormy cloud action around some bright sun, so no blue skies, but at least some texture (then it went all diffuse grey/white after a while, bleh).

Camera Kit:

Canon 5D classic
Tamron 90mm F2.8 VC
Yongnuo YN622 Transceiver

Shooting at F3.2 & ISO 50 today, variable shutter, but I stayed in HSS for most of it.

Lighting Kit:

Cheetah Boom Stand
Flashpoint Rovelight 600B
PhotoSEL 10" Reflector
Yongnuo YN622 Transceiver via PC Sync Cable

Power ranged from 1/4 to 1/16 at a distance of 6~7 feet approximately in HSS mode.

What advantages are there to using cats over sand bags as stabilisers, intrigued by your choice there? Obviously works, great photos, but why?

Cats are dynamic. Usually I just place some white sheets of paper all around my stands, and every cat within a square mile appears, bamphing out of now where, and cover all white sheets of paper, then nothing moves, no one goes near the stands, and the children avoid the strange feral cats that appear. :lol: That cat is actually my yard lion.'

It's been windy, so been using smaller modifiers and finding ways to avoid needing to bungee/stake it down, to avoid wind gusts, and beat down the sun with some distance with an efficient modifier because I was having issues with a big 60" outside in the wind with no help since this isn't my day job or anything.

Very best,

The kids love them, so they're every where in my yard. But, they are super handy to know that a gust is happening or coming, as they tend to pick up gentle wind that turns into the gust first. Bonus! :D
