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.
Maybe you read my review about the Tamrac Expedition 8. It is a large camera backpack but I did not take it with me very often. So I was in the market for a new backpack. I choose the Think Tank Photo StreetWalker HardDrive. Why? I'll explain it in this article.
Speedlites and wireless radio triggers need power. Usually the power is provided by AA or AAA batteries. Using rechargeable batteries is cost-efficient and environmentally friendly. But buying rechargeable batteries is by far not enough. A very good charger is necessary too. This article will present the three models I use.
Once more I shoot an event called Gummibeat. It's a kind of disco event. Of cause I'll not tell you something about the music or the drinks they serve. This article is about how I shoot this event. More after the jump.
The next update is here. This time it is all about supporting multiple languages. Since I'm a German native speaker I decided to provide a German version of all articles too. Don't be confused of the RSS-feed. It'll stay as it is and will deliver all new article in English language. Feel free to use the new Google +1 button in the top nav.
