The First Time I Used a Strobe…

… was in the class I enrolled in at the Arts Council of Princeton. It was a very fun and informative experience. The modeling light made it very easy to see the effects of the light even before a shot was taken. This made shooting very easy as opposed to using speedlites. Also, the recycling time in-between shots was almost negligible. The strobe was set to maximum power and it was so strong that I had to set my aperture to f/11, shutter speed to 1/200s and the ISO at 100 for most of my shots. It was also nice to know that the PC sync cables of my Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 7D both work. I wasn't able to test this feature for either camera prior to the class.

It was a very nice class and I had a great time and learned a lot from it. Much kudos to my teacher Peter C. Cook. It was also nice to get to know my classmates two of whom, Adrianna and Larry, modeled for the rest of us during the studio session of our class.
