    Mcnally's super friendly and down to earth. He came by and spent a 1/2 day with 16 of us -- gratis -- when he was in town doing some speaking engagements.

    Cool how he used cls for everything. Although he did have some troubles with getting the ir signal to bounce juuuust so. He's human, after all....

    He's gonna be at Photoshop world in Boston next week. I'm going to attend every single seminar he teaches. Him, Scott Kelby, Ben Willmore and Martin Evening are on my 'must attend' list...

    Prolly grab a copy of the book there as well...

    been reading most of the book during the day. He's hilarious, and its definitly a huge deal this book.

    On another news, I now own five flashes, that includes two sb-900s

    TTL = Weak

    I bought it anyway, all the basic principals still apply to using flashes in manual mode and it's gotten some good reviews already.

    CLS does NOT mean TTL.

    CLS lets you control your flashes in whatever mode you want, THROUGH the camera body. I shot entirely through CLS, but I also shoot entirely in manual mode with different groups of flashes, and adjusting them on the fly through the menu on the back of my camera, never needing to actually touch a flash.

    Perhaps you need to buy yourself a copy of the book.

    CLS = the ability to control flashes through your camera body. You can set em to TTL+/-, manual, set flash groups, etc, all without leaving your camera and walking over to the flash.

    It's fucking beautiful.

    Sackrider. :hsugh:

    Just kidding. that does sound pretty pimp, but considering i'm invested in all of 2 flashes, both of them built into the cameras i've got, that also sounds like it's a feature i'll never need.

    unless you're a paid photojournalist, I can't understand how anyone wouldn't be NUTS over the ability to create their own light.

    If I didn't have the Nikon CLS, I'd own pocketwizards and viv 285's, but off camera lighting is what makes photography fun for me.

    After working with low light, and no flashes (that are worth a shit) i've really started to develop a love of long exposures. Most everything that i've posted that wasn't taken in bright sunlight (75% of everything i've posted) has been done with long exposures. I like working with the light that's there... that isn't to say that once i've got some discretionary funds, i won't be gearing up some more, but right now, CLS isn't a feature i need. and i'll make due with the PWs. :hs:

    Mine came in a few hours ago. I'll read a little tonight and then on the train tomorrow. I have never looked forward to my hour and 15 min commute until today.

    skimmed through this at barnes and nobles and looks pretty good. nice and funny diagrams showing his setups, but outside of the cls stuff, i thought the way he held his camera, left eye on his shoulder with arm wrapped around all crazy-like was sorta neato.
