High-Speed & Time-Lapse.

@MNS1974

  High-speed and time-lapse are sort of the opposite but make a great pair to write about.  One is hundreds of stills recorded per second and the other is generally one frame per second or longer.  I chose to write about both as both are of great interest to me. I have had a lot of opportunity to shoot with high-speed cameras for well over a decade now with my first experience being on...Read More

Here is a really cool new take on the lame old twist style reflectors out on the market. We have been looking for a travel friendly reflector system and I think the Nori Square Bounce may just be the answer. I picked this up via Matt Jeppsen on twitter.
