    My madre has an old school film SLR and had a flash I knew she had, so I stole it form her a few nights ago and have been messing around with it a bit.....

    Here is the flash:

    Then I messed around with taking longer exposures and using the flash manually :mamoru:

    Then I tried for the hell of it to put it on my hot shoe on my camera and it worked!! :bowdown: Although there is absolutely no control of the flash other then high and low lol....so I tried some strobist shit

    You've brought nothing to the OTAP other then pixilated pictures of farm equipment......so I don't think you really have much to say. Unfortunately or fortunately however you see it, strobist is spiking up interest of novice photographers due to the variety and newness to the industry.

    It's all about using hotshoe flashes off camera
    it's not a new concept, but one that is now steadily gaining more popularity due to it's low budget, DIY mentality.
