After reviewing advice provided by forum members, I went ahead and got a used Vivitar 285HV and some Ebay triggers for a whopping total of $80 dollars. I got everything in the mail yesterday and messed around a bit last night. I haven't figured out how to use everything effectively yet but I figured I would post my first trail shots here as I am so excited. I know these photos have no real "value" so I am not really looking for C&C, just sharing my first attempts at off camera flash. :blushing: Thanks for looking and have a great day!
