Day 5/365 Feeling Misty
Picture 1- Stephen is shooting the body mist, I have the camera on my tripod with my shutter release cord. I also have the flash hooked up. It is very very hard to get him to press the button on the mist right as I press the shutter release button. We didn't sync up too well. So, the above result was the best of the bunch.
EXIF info: Canon T2i, Tokina 100mm f2.8 lens- 1/80 sec, ISO 400, f11, flash on and fired.
Picture 2- So, I decide to try and juggle the shutter release, lens which is off camera with a sync cord and press the mist button at the same time so that I can time the two together. I keep tipping the tripod over because I'm stretching the flash cord too long, and I have to refocus after like every shot. I think the spray coming out right by the nozzle is much better, but somehow I have re-angled myself to put a lighter background in there and now you can barely see the spray. After taking about 100 shots between the two of us, I decide I'm frustrated and choose the two you see above.
EXIF info: Canon T2i, Tokina 100mm f2.8 lens- f4, 1/60 second, ISO 1600, flash on and fired.
I'm walking away frustrated tonight. I feel like I'm getting worse instead of better.
