Proper thoughts and example shots using both these fine new toys will follow, but in the meantime here’s a purple flower!

I promise this isn’t going to turn into a flower blog. Lord, I don’t even know their names. But, in their favour, they do sit still (sort of) and they don’t complain half as much as my family who now hurt me when I take too many pictures.
And besides. It’s purple. PURPLE.
Anyway, one of the interesting side effects of buying a new flash gun is that I’ve started trying to read a bit more about off camera flash. Currently I’m working my way through some of the articles on The Strobist and if I ever work out what I need to make my 400D and my 430EX do that funky dance I’ll post my results.
Another less interesting side effect is that I’m broke. Cheque book photography is not recommended. Mr Canon, if your listening, your toys are lovely but very expensive.
Like I said, purple.
