Team Photo



Three Godox speedlights.  First time using my Godox on camera flash as the master.  The on camera flash was set to 1/2 and the two on the side were set to 1/1.

Fungi and Team Portriats



Still teaching myself off camera flash skills and taking it to the next level.  Using Godox speedlights now with a dedicated remote trigger that is hotshoe mounted.  Taking my old OCF into the woods with me, but will start using the new one in the woods instead until I am proficient and navigating the menus.

My D500 is still in the shop with its faulty XQD card slot.  I am not at all happy with the turn around time at Nikon.  $284 that I don't have and it took them a week just to open the box.  Now maybe it will take them another week to repair it.  Was hoping to go shoot some sports tonight, but not with my good camera in the shop.

State Dance Championships in Yakima


State Dance Championships in Yakima:


The Sundome was darker than expected.  Used a floor camera set to interval to get a few shots.  All of the best shots were with my D500 and Nikor 70-200mm f/2.8.  This was a fun experience and a nice break for me on the sunny side of the state.
