flash experiment

Shutter speed 1/100, f/22 at ISO 400. Flash was camera left (hand held) fired by Cactus trigger. Got this idea from the great Bryan Peterson.

comparison

Here you can see the difference in size between the Bolt Cyclone battery pack and the Vagabond Mini pack. The Vagabond is not heavy (compared to its predecessor) but the Bolt is very light.

Just started testing the Bolt but so far I am impressed. It’s easy to use and charges very quickly. I drained the charge that came on it and now I will see how long a full charge lasts.

More later.

Alone and in use. An economical tethering tool.

One of my all time favorite shows.

I hurried home from school to catch it. Lots of great memories.

I have said before how much I love album cover art and a perfect example of that are the covers of Quicksilver Messenger Service. Great music as well. I need to listen to them again.

An old favorite

I’ve bought this in every form I have found it in. This was the first iteration for me though. Must have been the art work.

Where did this come from?

Found this in with my albums and it is NOT mine. I was not an Elvis fan.

Must belong to my wife, guess I should put it back.

Two reasons for this purchase

Two reasons I bought this 45

As I recall I bought, but it was a long time ago, this 45 because of this photo and for the B side!

The 60’s were strange even in small Midwestern towns.

Cactus triggers V5

Cactus triggers V5, originally uploaded by Music Man5.

Got these as an experiment. They are lightweight, with an average build. They work very well but I have not tested them at any distance yet. Only complaint so far is the male shoe mount on bottom. The locking knob does not turn, on either unit, and so it’s difficult to lock them down.

More later.

my latest head shot setup

Recently took head shots of a high school marching band and this was the setup. 48″ octabank on AB800 key light. Stripbank on AB400 accent/kicker light. And lastly another AB400 (with orange gel) on the new Westcott X-Drop back ground, a marvelous tool.

This shoot was a lot of fun and a lot of work.
