For the Keele Medics Graduation Ball 2016 I decided to use a black background for an event from the first time. Somewhat different from my usual blown white background and with different lighting issues to consider. Gallery at: http://www.willsphotoimaging.co.uk/keele-medics-2016.html

#strobists and #strobism - false doctrine or indoctrinated ?

Why do some people insist on misusing these terms ?. Do they think they are being 'cool' or 'fashionable' or does the prevalence of the use of the term Stateside and lack of general knowledge of people make them think they are actually using the correct term ?.

Last year I was 'in the market' for some lighting equipment that gave me studio quality lighting options with the ease and near portability of #speedlights. The options that were available all seemed to have long flash durations at the higher power settings. With the higher pixel count of cameras these days and also mortal for dynamic movement in images the flash duration becomes rather important. Then the #ProFoto B2 was released, expensive but it seems to be what I was looking for. In March of 2015 I 'bit the bullet' and, a year later, I have not regretted it. At the time there was a special offer of a day of instruction to get better acquainted with the system, the link goes to my experiences on the day.

Kinder Scout walk
Well, at the third attempt in a week and 3 weeks 5 days later than I had originally intended, success. I was off for a walk and bivi on Kinder Scout.
My original holiday plans were scuppered by a calf / Achilles problem 12 days before I was due to set off. My body was having one of its ‘break down’ phases at just the wrong time.  ..., ........
This delay during the week potentially had a few advantages. The financial one was my being able to get on an earlier train without paying peak time prices. The practical one was, possibly, water. Over the last few years when I’ve walked in the High Peak District moors and slept on Kinder Scout it has been increasingly difficult to find water coming off the plateau’s edge.

The ProFoto B1 changed the way some people can light their photographs and the B2 250 took it a step further. For what they can do it is a wonderful lighting setup, most useful for Wedding, event and portrait photography. I had the offer of a day to find out more: http://www.willsphotoimaging.co.uk/getting-a-better-understanding-of-the-profoto-b1-and-b2-ocf-system/
