Welcome!

Linda JeffersIn a world of so many great photographers and writers, I am venturing into some unknown territories, leaving comfort zones, finally very willing to practice the art of seeing. By maintaining the practice of posting daily photos, I hope to continue learning about the possibilities that I trust are out there for the taking.

Come join me on my journey!

Practicing With Two Canon 600 EX-TR Speedlites.

I have been trying to learn Speedlites and Speedlites with Pocket Wizards for over 4 years. I’ve never had consistent luck getting all the gear to work consistently with each other. I’d try to figure out where I went wrong. Sometimes they’d fire, and then stop. I’ve been frustrated beyond belief. Each year I’d pick up trying to get them to work, usually after I’d spend more money on newer versions of the same lighting gear. Insanity, I know. I just kept thinking I’d get different, workable, results. I never did. Until………I got the new Wireless 600 EX-TR Speedlite. I don’t need Pocket Wizards anymore when I shoot with 600 EX-TRs (thanks JJ for the loan of one of yours)  and the Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2.

Thanks to to JJ for this link to Syl Arena’s video tutorial on the Canon 600 EX-TR Speedlite. And……for coming over so we could practice with our 600’s.

I’m shooting a Family of 19 tomorrow. So thanks to Jen for coming over to scout locations with me, and thanks to Jen and Stacy who will be helping me at the shoot just outside my home on one of the golf course hillsides in between the Palmer 15th and 16th holes.

I’m open to any suggestions as to where I might sell some of my old lighting equipment.

Just before the second set of golf course sprinklers shot water on my light stands, Jen posed and felt comfortable (finally:-)) playing in front of my lens. And yes, I am very lucky to have this very willing model. Thanks Jen.

    Thank you for the yoga pictures. You definitely have a way of making people look better than they do in real life so your shoot will be great today. Looking forward to it!

    Four years of practicing and troubleshooting shows your dedication and focus to learning your tools. Of course, we all know you did *other things* during those four years. And the results are striking and engaging.
