So I have two SB600 speedlights. Unfortunately, I dropped one a while ago and broke the flash tube. Well, $25 later on ebay and voila, a new flash tube arrived in the mail.
Now being half azn, I should excel at photography AND… soldering, right? lol.
Here’s a middle of working shot (thanks to directions on http://photorojo.blogspot.com/2009/05/diy-nikon-sb-600-speedlight-flash-tube.html )
There’s me draining the capacitor with a multimeter.
Unfortunately, after the first test, I forgot to drain the capacitor when I resoldered one side of the flash tube. I was lucky that I only got blinded when the flash popped. Screw driver in one hand and 700*+ soldering iron in the other. *whew*.
Test shot after reassembly:
Yay! Both SBs at 1/64 working great! (with wireless yongnuo RF602s of course!)
Oh, and we had a guest speaker with M_____ on Missions (I can’t remember the first word!!) and some friends decided to get a kid! (So did my fiance!)
Tiff and dave are the couple on the left talking about a kid.
So yes, good weekend of fun times.
So yes, faithful two readers of mine lol. My weekend involved a photoshoot in DC by @DCPortraits, a gig playing with my band for my friend Dan Houtz’s ThynkVocally project AND finishing up the church worship pictures lol.
Would you like to see examples of all of this work!?
Out of DC and on to the gig!!
That’s it!!! I’m not posting any more worship session shots, you got the idea from the last eighty posts lol.
Enjoy and goodnight all!!!
Today, Mollie and I visited OCMD one last time before the end of the summer (and more importantly before Mollie starts all her college classes). Definitely had a good time.
Stopped and saw the Jesus sand sculptures from Son Spot.
Mollie got on the sling shot with a total stranger named Cayla (even paid for her since they don’t allow single riders?!???).
Then we hit up Hoopers for delicious crabs and headed back to reality. Ahhhhh. Life is good.
Oh snap! Did I totally mention that I got video of Mollie and Cayla on the sling shot?? xD
(and a new on camera video)
Hi y’all! Er… Hi all!!!
Guess who’s done editing the handful of shots that he took this weekend!? I AM!!! The only weirdo photographer who doesn’t batch edit and spends time on each individual photograph…
Here’s the link to the whole set: FlickR link for Mollie and Tiff (set)
I’ve got another friend who shoots photography that I’d like to mention in my bloggaroo so hopefully she responds back to my email to repost some of her work
Good night stalkers!!!
Here are two more from the shoot. I think my next couple posts will be from this shoot. I should be done editing them this week so a new project and new content are soon to follow!! (And I’m ordering my 24-70 this week!!!!!!)
… went really well! I set up my main on a 24″ softbox, my secondary on a 9″ soft box (though it makes me want to buy a strip), and my hair light up with a 15* snoot. Fun times!! Here’s a shot that I quickly edited so I have something to blog lol. The rest is coming soon!
I can’t wait to edit the rest!!
Here are the latest edited shots from Mollie’s birthday party!! Unfortunately, I had to eat during the party which meant? A huge chunk of potentially mind blowing pictures NOT taken due to some Chianti braised short ribs!! (bangin’ by the way!)
I hope you enjoyed the pictures!!
Two birthday party shoots and one impromptu ministry group shoot. *whew!!*
Here’s a quick edit from my fiance’s birthday party at olive gardens. Couple of friends and family members showed
I know these three sets will be fun to edit (since I actually know a lot of the people in them).
Sorry for the short post but you DID get a picture, eh? I might even make a video tomorrow!!
So HERE is a new pic of Mollie:
I totally dig her new red hair. It’s very different from her normal brunette self. It’s almost like meeting a new hot stranger lol.
I took this shot right before I dropped my SB600 on the ground rushing to get into my car :( Looks like $30 for a new flash bulb replacement and me soldering in a new one. I’ll try to remember to take pics for reference (and macro practice lol)
