    quick snapshot of one of my dogs :rofl: it focuses really fast, and it's tack sharp. :bowdown:

    I think i'm as ready as I'll be for the wedding this weekend. Fortunately the bride is super laid back and chill about the pictures.

    nah, i have an SB800 and an SB600 already. I asked about renting more lights, but everyone seemed to think i had all the glass and light i would need. I have cactus v2s triggers, but i'll probably end up using CLS most of the day.

    Needless to say, even with these snapshot quality composition photos, the 85 L shines like a golden supernova of excellent amazingness..

    I want one :wtc:

    I like those 2 a lot. :coold:


    I just remembered there is one other thing i need that I can't seem to find locally - green gel for my flash to WB florescent lights. I have an idea for a shot of the bride groom that i want to use it with but i can't find mine, and none of my shit camera shops locally sell gels :mad:

    UPS just dropped off my 70-200 F2.8. Now I need to order some big boy pants so I'll be able to hold it up all day.

    I haven't been using my 70-200 2.8 at all lately. I've only been using my 85L 1.2, and my 24-70 2.8 mainly.

    This saturday I should be though. Going to the Ferrari Challenge and going to put my 1.4x extender on to try it out.

    Nah, If I don't have it, I'd rather rent. Then, if I fuck it up I have insurance to cover it. If I fuck up yours.....
