That's what I've been doing for the last 10 years or so...until I saw the light

Granted, the pics I'm talking about were taken at -2 to -1 of flash power. Just looking for a hint of light to bring some photos to life.

Btw, I posted one of those pics in another thread, but don't know how to link to a single post. Do you.

Well, I guess I don't take a whole lot of pictures of people when I'm traveling. Feels too much like work, j/k.

To link to a single post, click on the little number on the top right corner of each post inside the header. It's across from the posting time. For example, in your current post above, you can click on the "#11".

It'll link to the thread, but when it's finished loading it should take you directly to the post: http://photocamel.com/forum/camera-a...ml#post2060113

I'm the total opposite. My main goal in photography right now is to take pics of people using a flash.

As for linking to a single post, hang on.

Edit: Test.

Al, look at this one from Custom Brackets:

CB Digital-T - Camera Flash Brackets - Products - Custom Brackets

This could be the ticket.

Sorry, Michael, was looking for something like that. Something one doesn't need an engineering degree to use

Hahaha no problem.

Personally I hate those separate camera rotators. You have to turn the camera and flash separately.

Check out the last one I linked. Even easier to use than the one from gryph.
