Photo Adventures with Curiosity and Learning

June 01, 2016: Early morning at Queensway Sec School

I've been adjusting my flash arrangement - which has been quite harsh in the past. I've followed Nicky Bay's example of a flexible dual arm arrangement. I'm using Meike 320 flash - which can be remotely triggered (S1 mode) by another flash. I use flash on the camera that is pointed up to provide the trigger flash - and this avoids reflected flash back into the camera lens. Today the results are pretty good (except I forgot to use fresh batteries). This flash also has a built in focus light.
