    Einstein Users........

    I wasn't sure. After some internet searching, I found someone who was doing something similar off of the 2000 watt Honda generator (also runs at 1600 watts), with out issue. At 1/4 to 1/2 power, I'm not pulling much power. In a full 8 second ride, I may shoot 8-10 images. Most of the time...

    Einstein Users........

    They run at 52 decibels. At outdoor events it is no issue as Rodeo's tend to be loud events anyway. In addition, most of these events run at large fairs so there is a ton of background noise anyway. If there is a slight chance of rain, I cover the flash units and tape the opening closed (to...

    Einstein Users........

    After talking to a few other folks, the decision was made and I purchased Pocket Wizard; Flex TT5, AC3 and ten MC2. While I REALLY liked the CC system and the idea, for what I do and potential interference from other media and radios, plus the distance factor, Pocket Wizard was the winner...

    Einstein Users........

    All strobe units will be 15 to 20 feet high, mounted to either light poles or in the stands. No issues with anything getting in the way. All radio transmissions.

    Einstein Users........

    Cyber Commander or Pocket Wizard? I will be running 10 to 12 Einstein units for both indoor and outdoor events. Rodeo is the primary subject. I really like the Cyber Commander in theory, but its "range" concerns me. The range is listed as 400 feet. As we know, many times these ratings are...

    Strobe Mounting.......

    Most of these arenas are the size of a football field or damn close. Thus the long throws.

    Strobe Mounting.......

    Need the height to light outdoor arenas. While I appreciate the concern for risk, I'm also an electrician. I have spent a considerable amount of time on ladders, in scissor lifts, in one and two man buckets, etc, All of which are options for getting up to where I need to be. If necessary...

    One Last Upland Post.......

    With all of my wingshooting over until October, it is time to refocus and get back on; Rodeo and Motocross. Most of my summer months will be in the rodeo arena, but I do plan on hitting some Motocross events as well. Until then, here are a few last Upland images from Fall/Winter! 1. 2...

    Strobe Mounting.......

    Looking for ideas on what may be the best way to mount Einstein e640's to what more or less amounts to a telephone pole. So far, the best that I can come up with is to mount the strobe to the light stand and then ratchet strap the light stand to the pole. I need the strobes to be 20ft. above...

    Equipment Financing.......

    A pretty darn good opportunity presented itself this week, which will require some additional purchases. Does anyone have feedback or insight into the best companies out there, who offer equipment financing? Thank You.

    One of the clubs near us, hosts a Cancer benefit shoot each March. The hunts take place in the morning and then the afternoon / evening are devoted to a banquet / benefit / fundraiser. This year, I donated a photo session to the benefit. I was excited to see that the photo session donation...

    Timing is Everything.......

    I’ve always told people that part of getting THE shot or shot sequence, comes down to one thing....... Timing. Being in the right place at the right time. Knowing the event/sport/subject helps as well. I was covering a rodeo this past Friday and I was in the arena prior to the opening...

    Side Hustle.......

    I'm actually looking at starting up an auto/marine/aviation detail business. I did it when I was younger and see opportunity for it. Almost seems as though there is more opportunity and dollars to be had there.
