I got some studio equipment, time for some learning.



And a quick shot while I was messing around.

Are you using the pop up flash to trigger them?

Yeah, just put a note card in front of it so it doesn't hit the subject. Need to find a cost effective trigger system.

Looking at heads to put on an ancient SLIK tripod. the center column is 3/4" in diameter and uses a recessed grove at the top to hold the head. How do I know what's compatible?

I use those, pretty reliable. And thats from personal experience. Triggers it 100% of the time when connected properly. The connection is sorta wonky though, so test it out before using it for anything critical (like if you were shooting film or something).

Interesting story behind this photo. I was riding the train back home and I was bored, so I pulled out the camera to entertain myself. I decided to take a page out of the lomo book and braced the camera between my chin and my shoulder and pointed it in the general direction of my gaze. Anything that tickled my fancy I'd just press the shutter.

I only fired two frames and both were actually ok, but I liked this one. Pretty good for not composing huh? Slightly OOF though. And that's motion blur across the bottom.

Would those work with Alien Bees? There is no hot shoe connect, just RJ-11 (I believe) and 1/8" jack.

Yeah they work, I used to use them. They come with an adapter to 1/8" but I recommend getting a better all metal one.

Cool. New toys are always fun

Wish I had space for a studio, I borrow time at nearby universities. (they don't know... shhhh)


EDIT**
oh and wired triggering is the only way to go for cheap. Hobby tells you how to make badass sync cords on the wayyy cheap. Check out lighting 101 on strobist.com.
