    Left the camera in Manual mode and overexposed? OR left the Exposure compensation at some crazy high setting like +5 stops. 

    Im just bored and guessing….

    No no the shot on the screen is actually how I wanted it… The failure was worked through….. But was totally avoidable

    +Brent Burzycki experiences like this show you if you've had enough mistakes happen to learn to work through them. Sounds like you have and as such made the best with that you had.

    Next time you'll have a working trigger, but it's nice to know that when things go wrong you've got enough experience under your belt to make it work.

    By any chance were you trying out the new Pocket Wizard Plus IIIs? They work great, but I found out at a shoot they're just different enough from the old Plus IIs to require new cables between trigger and (my oddball) strobes.
