Father’s thought (1)

Francis and Charles-EdwardWhen you are a in a public place with a 12 days old baby in your arms, you automatically become the center of attention; Everyone look in your direction, everyone talk to you, and look at that little thing you are gently holding. It’s like being Santa Clause: you put a smile in everyone’s face.

Mastering off camera flash is great for portraits, but why stop there? This morning, I went to a press conference. The kinda-boring-guy-standing-behind-a-microphone talking-to-the-media type of press conference.

I setup a remote flash on a magic arm and a super clamp on a chair, fired thru a pocket wizard. At least, I could say that I got some nice light out of it. Super clamp and magic arm are fun. You can set them up pretty much everywhere, and you can attach a flash or a remote camera to them. The limit is your imagination!
