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!!!
