    Some of my good friend's girlfriends are in this sorority and one of them is the social chair and forgot to book the photography place to come shoot their Formal tonight. She called me this morning and asked if I'd come, so I said yeah. Most of them are just snapshots since most everyone was drunk and pretty wild. Just figured I'd post up a few anyways. I put them all on my website and am letting them have the full size images for free. :coold:

    Supposedly I'm getting a check tomorrow from them, even though I agreed to do it for free, so we'll see :noes:

    Most all were taken with my D300 and 18-200 VR + SB-80DX. A few with my D50 and 50 f/1.8.

    Isn't the diffuser the little thing that flips down on the flash? or are you talking about something like this?

    i decided to torture myself.

    when he talks about his special rubber band for attaching the better bounce card, he describes peeling the rubber down the flashhead as "now just peel it back like... some other object you might be familiar with :hsugh:"

    :ugh::ugh::ugh:

    I may have missed the general idea here, but is this guy really just selling trimmed inkjet printer paper and rubber bands for 10 dollars?

    its paper designed to hold up and be flexible, and a extra strong rubber band, but the idea is t do it yourself, he's just capitalizing on the anti gary fond crowd

    Shoot with longer shutter speeds to capture more ambient light in the background while the flash freezes the subject so that you won't get blur from them. Use rear-sync FTW.
