Flash excitement

My new flash should be here any day now!! I'm so excited I can barely stand it. It's funny because when I finally bought my new digital SLR camera I thought for that amount of money I would be ready to go as a beginner photographer. No, no. I soon found out that a shoe-mount flash was absolutely necessary to do any kind of real work - and that they aren't cheap. So I've been saving and, largely due to the first wedding I got to shoot a few weeks ago (pictures coming soon), I got to order it this week!




I also ordered a Gary Fong Lightsphere which is pretty cool. It makes the flash not look so "flashy" and diffuses the light to make it look much more natural and even.

I loved doing the wedding and reception a few weeks ago, but I really loved taking pictures of all the little kids that were there! So I think I may lean toward child and family photography in addition to weddings, it is just so much fun.

Hey Tyan! Quick question...where do you order most of your camera stuff? I hope life is going great and I can't wait to see you in a few months!

Way fun stuff Tyan, you will love it. I for sure like to take the newborns and kids the best--wedding and family picts can get a little crazy! can't wait to see your picts.

I get everything from B&H Photo (www.bhphoto.com) - they are so great! You don't have to worry about your nice expensive camera getting there with no battery, or some other vital piece you then have to pay extra for! They are the best.
