Well glad to report, aside from a massive equipment failure….That was pretty much my own fault… not a bad result so far….
CHECK YOUR EQUIPMENT MORE THAN AN HOUR BEFORE THE SHOOT
We will see as I edit more later in the week….
Broken Studio Lighting Remote Trigger
Brent with a Hammer
Really Broken Studio Lighting Trigger
So, what was the disaster?
When I get back to a real computer I will write about it…..
Left the camera in Manual mode and overexposed?
ORleft 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
Can't wait to hear about your, um,
+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.
Sadly no it was an issue with my cyber commander.. Alien bees….. I will take some time to write it up so others can learn from my issues…
