Day 23: Did You Hear Something?
365-Day 23 on Flickr.
This is shot no. 3 in the Fear Series. I’m feeling good again after yesterday’s flop. But, yesterday wasn’t a total waste; I learned a new trick! I finally learned how to trigger my strobe multiple times in a single exposure. Awwwsome! I used this handy trick in today’s shot.
30 sec @ f/22, 18mm, ISO 200, single strobe @ 1/4 (#90 Dark Yellow Green gel)
How I did it: The strobe was in two places during this shot: 1) at the top of the stairs behind me on the floor, pointed at my back and 2) handheld at the bottom of the stairs just above camera level and pointed into the space above and parallel to the stairs. I popped the strobe 3 times at the top of the stairs and twice at the bottom, making sure to cover up that pesky, red strobe pilot light as I traveled.
