What's up Wednesday: Don't Miss What’s Happening This Fall

Good Morning Everybody,

Hey guys and gals, I just received two new prototype products I'm pretty fired up about. One is a 40 inch reflector that is super silver on one side and black on the other side. Black you say, why black? I’ll give you low-down in a later post.

Umbrellas The other product is something I'm really fired up about is a giant umbrella I just received. I asked my good friends at Westcott if they could work up a super large shoot through umbrella for me. WOW!

It's, get this, a 6 foot wide shoot through umbrella!  The lighting possibilities indoors and outdoors are endless. I'm planning to put it through it's paces over the next week. I'll keep you posted – it’s way cool!

OK, on with today's post. Here we go...

  1. I went to David's 2009 workshop in Phoenix and it is like an avalanche of good stuff, plus he gives out a ton of free stuff. I am signed up to go again in 2010. Kinda like going to a really funny movie... the first time you see it you miss things because of all the laughing... so you go see it again. Plus, I believe in the throw mud on the wall and see if it stick method of learning.
