April 13th, Day 103: Something New

I did it. I bought a speedflash. the Nikon SB 700 to be exact.

Yes, I decided it was high time to learn what the flash hype was all about.

I rarely use my on-camera flash, simply because it never seems to do what I need it to do. And from what I’ve read about on-camera flash units, this is just the nature of the beast.

Anyway, so I pulled out a few props; a pencil cup, Chewie, and a toy car Isaac found somewhere, and got down to business.

The following photos are SOOC, aside from the watermark, of course. :)

I suppose what I should have done was take a before-flash and an after-flash for comparison sake, so just imagine a dimly lit room with only an overhead ceiling light.

For this one I tried a bounce flash off the tabletop.
