Wireless triggers for flashes/Indiana Photographer

I have a session to post for a sneak peek but decided to write a post about a new item I recently purchased for my flash and camera. I have studio lights, which are really nice….and as anyone who I’ve used them on can tell you…they aren’t very portable. There is a lot that goes into bringing them and setting up. When my friend Jen Rinaldi came to visit last year, she brought these wireless triggers for all her flashes. I loved the ease of set up…very cool. But, I didn’t think that I could use those because I don’t have a Nikon Flash, I use a Sigma.

Fast forward to July. When I shot with Anna Lynch McClary, she also used flashes for studio lights. Again, I was curious about all that and had asked her to send me a link of where she got her triggers. Jen had sent me links of where she got hers, but my problem was that I still didn’t have a Nikon SB800 and when I looked for them…I found out that they stopped making those and I really don’t have it in the budget to buy a SB900 yet. So, anyway, when Anna sent me the link to where she got her triggers, I saw that they have those triggers for my Sigma.

I was/am elated! I bought one right then and there. I got it in the mail on Monday and I’m posting the results that I got last night. I tested it on my girls, then I immediately used it for the session that I did last night. My husband was so great to hold the umbrella and the flash for me.

Here is the link to where I bought it:

The M children~Christmas portraits

You all may remember these little cuties from the fall photographs that we took not too long ago. Well, with Christmas right around the corner, it was time for portraits for the Christmas cards. Their mom brought some really cute props and I think we had a good time. She even brought “snow”. It was everywhere, but thankfully, it is so easy to clean up. :o)

Sun Flares, exposure, and a reflector

I need to finish up my photographs from the fair, and I will, but I took B and E outside tonight to try using my new “reflector”. It really works great. I need to get some gold spray paint and paint one side of it and see how it affects the photos. With B. I was trying to achieve some sun flare and I did on my very last shot. Ya!!

I’m also adding one of E. that I took using my studio lights. I hadn’t used them in awhile so I thought I would try again.
