One of the prizes I won at the GA Nat’l Fair was a $50 gift certificate to a local camera shop. Trey and I visited the shop and I picked out a little camera accessory called an “umbrella shoemount”. It is an adaptor of sorts that lets you take your flash off you camera and mount it on a tripod. You can also attach a reflective umbrella to it as well to diffuse the flash’s light even more.
I tested it out at home that night with my lovely super model wife Heidi. The next day Trey and I took it with us to the Georgia Industrial Children’s Home and played with it some more.
I was really impressed with the lighting control and quality it gives my photos. I can’t wait to play with it more and I’m already getting the itch for a 2nd flash to really start to experiment with controlled light!
