Just got my RF-602!!!

   I finally received my Wireless Flash Trigger, the model RF-602 and I am so excited to use it. I am still waiting on my studio lighting equipment but that is mainly because I need on of the stands for my flash, and I am also waiting on a Flash Shoe holder which will hold my flash on the stand and could also hold an umbrella (for reflecting the light). I am also excitedly waiting on my new lens, which should be on my doorstep by Wednesday. I am pretty excited with all my upgrades, I just hope I can sell the old things to make up for the money.

New Purchases

   In just the last couple of days I have made a few purchases, I talked Cameron into buying 3 studio light set ups which they can also use when shooting music videos, I also bought a wireless remote flash trigger, the RF-602.4 GHz set up for Canon which has good reviews and I cannot wait to get it. I also purchased a Vello 3' TTL off-camera cord f/canon which I most likely will resell on ebay as I have purchased the wireless remote triggers. My biggest purchase though was made yesterday on I am finally giving in and purchasing a Tamron 18-270mm lens though I am already having issues, I had purchased one on Amazon only to find out today that it is for a Nikon when I was searching for a Canon mount, so even though I've emailed the seller today it was already being prepared to ship so it might end up on my doorstep anyways, hopefully I can send it back because that costed me $380.00 and I quickly went to ebay and purchased the correct one for $469.00 and if Cameron finds out either way I am dead. I am already trying to sell my other two lenses and my old flash.

Experimenting with Low Key Lighting

  I have always been intrigued by this type of photography, but never quite sure on how or where to begin. After a bit of research yesterday, I finally decided that I would dip my lens into this interesting view of the world. Yesterday using the sunset as my only source of light and doing my best to make much of the photo dark and lighting the subject every so much, I am not too disappointed in the outcomes. Here are just a couple photos from the attempts.

 I don't really have any photos of me and my little angel so I was happy to use him with me. It was difficult with nobody behind the camera so he didn't pay a whole lot of attention. These aren't the greatest photos, but I don't plan on stopping there and hopefully I will improve on this technique and use it more.
