Went to a wedding last week, left with a giant dark spot in my vision
Apr 2, 2013

Let me set the scene for you; my wife's friend's wedding and I am seated at a table that was near a corner. I was also face the corner where the photographer for this wedding set his wirelessly controlled strobe light(sorry, I am not well aquainted with flash photography so I may not know the term). Every time he took a picture, the thing went off. By the end of the night, I think I might have had that thing flash a bright light at me hundreds of times. I couldn't even see from a particluar part of my eye until I left. At my wedding, the photographer walked around with a macro ring and our pictures were great. What is the advantage of using a strobe that this guy used over the macro light?
