Wireless Strobist, here I come

Originally uploaded by Kadath
Few websites are having as transformational effect on photography as Strobist is right now. I have finally moved to having a number of Nikon Speedlights which are wirelessly controlled by the built in lighting computer in the D300, using the Creative Lighting System. This is my first attempt, a bit hot on the specular highlings but exactly the kind of coole bacground effect I was going for. Total set up time under 10 minutes and the background is the speaker grille off a boombox!

Cat and Caddy

Surreal shot I got over the weekend. Nothing like a little 4 footed friend to make you worry about scratches to a beautiful toy. Ron took it really well!

Self portrait with home theater

Originally uploaded by Kadath
Self Portrait using wireless SB 800 speedlight, Cleon trigger, and the D300 on a Bogen Manfrotto tripod. Note to self, next time shave before doing a self portrait!

Now that I have a second wireless speedlight and an idea of how to get the camera to focus wirelessly instead of just triggering the next run should be a lot easier and pleasing without the deep contrast. I can't promise I'll be any prettier but I will shave! =)
