    Default My new OCF setup

    I got half of an OCF set up for Christmas (Cactus triggers and an 8' stand). I bought the other half (umbrella and bracket) on Christmas day, and got the last of it in the mail yesterday. So today I set it all up (seeing that three kids are back in school - poor Jack is feeling neglected while I post this - gonna spend some quality time with him as soon as I hit submit).

    Here's the setup:

    And then a goofy picture without the flash (I'm doing a project 365, today's is self portrait day. I learned that my posture sucks!)

    IMG_1898

    And then with the OCF (no PP other than WB in ACR - I even kept my stupid zit)

    4/365

    Both:
    Exposure: 0.013 sec (1/80)
    Aperture: f/4.0
    Focal Length: 30 mm
    ISO Speed: 200


    Natalie turns 4 this month, Jack 18 months so I will be using the OCF for their portraits. So excited!

    Nice job Gwen! I am jealous. I really want to learn OCF. We just don't have the space AT ALL!

    Congrats Gwen!

    I wish I have a dedicated area to set up my stuff. I have to keep breaking down mine, so I haven't really used it all that much.

    I am SO jealous, Gwen! I've got an awesome OCF set up, but I can't lift it right now.

    Looks to me like you are off to a GREAT start! I can't wait to see Natalie's and Jack's "official" photos this month!

    TFS,
