Well, I'm back from vacation. We spend nearly two weeks on Fuerteventura. This is an island which is part of the Canary Islands. While the vacation itself was great I had some issues with my camera gear and I want to share them with you.
Yesterday I was able to visit the "Glasbach Bergrennen 2012". While I'm actually not necessarily a fan of watching racing events I enjoy shooting them. This time I had the opportunity to take out my new monopod Sirui P-424 for the fist time. Find the results after the jump.
I like to work with plain speedlites. Usually a speedlite is zoomable which gives you the ability to form the light. But often this is not enough. More light modifies are needed. If you want to restrict the light you can attach a lot of DIY items to a flash. Starting with a piece of paper and ending with a bunch of straws. Sure they work even if you have to reensemble them every time you use them. If you need reliable stuff DIY is not an option. As for the gels I decided to go for the Honl Photo Professional Lighting System. This time I'll tell you about the light modifiers I use. More after the jump.
