I’m in the midst of a love/hate relationship with my off-camera flash. I love experimenting with some new photo techniques that emerge from this type of photography; I absolutely cannot STAND not fully knowing how to use it. Today, this silly thing simply WOULD NOT FIRE on command. I tried standing closer to it, tried putting the camera right next to the flash – you name it – but the temperamental thing just wouldn’t behave. I was trying to snag a shot for today’s #CY365 challenge, which was “Speed,” or “Fast.” Zach (in his new black cast) was kind enough to do some running towards me to get this shot. But it took many, many takes in order to even get close. This isn’t quite the finished image I had in mind, but the ol’ flash wouldn’t behave properly. Ah well, I’ve much to learn. Guess that’s why I’m doing this challenge in the first place!
