Day #112 @ Photography Project 365

Here you see my new RF flash trigger at work. I mounted my Nikon Speedlight SB-600 flash on the trigger, and the trigger on a tripod. I placed my strobe to the left of my guitar while stood to its right. As you can see from the shadow, the light source (my flash) and my camera were not parallel (i.e. they were both facing the guitar from different directions).

With the RF trigger, the flash has to be set manually - there is no TTL functionality available. Because of that, things do get a bit tricky. I've never studied my flash's guide number table but if I intend to really make use of this trigger, I'll have to. In fact, I probably need to take it along with me whenever I plan to use my flash in manual mode.

Wonderful shot! I've been doing a "Music in May" photo theme and it's been challenging, but very rewarding.

(*The project started on May 1 with the letter "A" and I'm now up to the letter "T". If you'd like to see some of the photos, they are on my regular blog http://thekreativelife.blogspot.com/ )

Have a beautiful day!
