Something old, Something new....

Something borrowed,

And something blue.

1/2000s f/3.5 at 28.0mm iso100

The something old was my 5D & Minolta 28-85.
The something new was my Sony F36AM flash. (minolta 3600hs rebadge)
The something borrowed was the short time the flowers are in bloom.

The high speed flash is interesting as I have not had one previously.

I decided to play with the high shutter speeds just to
see what they look like.

1/3200s f/3.5 at 28.0mm iso100

1/2000s f/4.5 at 75.0mm iso100

Water fountain

1/3200s f/4.5 at 85.0mm iso100

No problem with camera shake or wind at those shutter speeds.

So what do other people do with their high speed flash?
I would like to try some fun stuff.

Regards,

Rick

Pretty flowers, but that fountain shot is great! Frozen glass.

Ideally, the lens captures what the eye had in mind...but the damn thing won't listen.

Re: Something splashy...

Thanks,
It was the one that came out most surprisingly.

I will have to try some more high speed stuff.

Re: Something old, Something new....

Thanks,
I have played with the wireless a bit, but I have
to do A lot more practice to figure it out.

Fun to experiment, because it doesn't cost anything.

Thanks.

Summer can never get here soon enough.
Spring though, has been very nice this year.

How is the weather over on your side of the pond?

Fill light for birds in the bush, or on cloudy days

Can I say that? Oh, I just did
