    Was messing around with my flash and a quick little home made snoot to play around with. It was just playing with the little snoot than anything.

    Dig the lighting, it's always fun to play with light and see what you can do.

    It would be interesting to see what it would look like with a flash hitting from behind to create a halo.

    Thanks! It was fun. Wouldn't I need another light though to do one behind and then one in the front to light me? I did one where I pointed the light at the wall behind me and it just made a silhouette of my head.

    Product of riding an atv in 20 degrees. I gotta' get on them lips :lol: I'll be taking donations btw.

    Thank you!

    Thank you very much/1

    Not sure if I want another speed light like 285hv or something like alienbee b800. The 285 is way more affordable though and easier to bring around places.

    I'd wait for studio lighting for when you have a studio. I'd do the speedlight. But im pretty dumb most the time. haha.

    cool light man.

    Thanks! That's what i'm thinking because i don't always have a power source and those packs are darn expensive.

    Exactly! And 285's can run off of those nice energizer Ni-MH rechargables. or are the cadmium? I forget but they rule!
