In order to keep up with all I have going on in my life I'm combining this blog and my family blog. I will still make 1 post a day, every day. But I will use it to make a family journal/photo book at the end of November 2009 to document our year. It's just too confusing having 7 or 8 blogs to work on. Anyways, continue follow me at
My birthday presents came today!!!! I got a new tripod (my old one was OLD and a bear), a polarizer (but will need to be changed out for one that fits my camera) and a SPEED LIGHT! YAY!!!!! Here's my first try with the speed light. PLEASE give me suggestions/hints on how to use this thing. I was bouncing it off the ceiling. Did it work? It's a huge improvement off of the shadow cast by my lens with the on-board flash, but still. What can I do to make it better?
