    as much fun with m8 as one can possibly get

    Sometimes i am amazed with how stupid I can be. I went shooting yesterday and took a spare battery for my visatec litepac, but forgot a battery for a digital back in a charger at home. so, i ended up shooting the whole thing with M8. Oh, I also packed four pocket wizards, but no interface cable. Thanks god that I had an IR transmitter, just in case! You know, M8 does not have a PC terminal
    almost forgot... here is the shoot

    Too funny -- perfect venue for the M8 though!

    That wasn't the interface cord there in her purse? Evidently I am used to a very different type of flash photography.

    Very entertaining. I agree she did well.

    I like the color version also
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    I think the B&W version has a great 1960-ies atmosphere.

    that's what i think too. also dildo looks much less obnoxious, which makes the picture even nastier in a good way. however, color coordination between a jacket and a purse and green/pink colour match is lost. it's a tough decision to make

    The color version actually appears to have more impact. The colors of the lead foils on the wine bottles behind her, the orange drink in the glass on the table, etc., all create their own interesting contrasts that get lost in the B/W version. The 60's look of the B/W is good, but a bit harsh, and not enough paparazzo looking, which would be the ticket for this shot, I think. Still great stuff to enjoy....

    P.S. Sorry to hear the cord/battery story. Brings back so many unfortunate memories ;-) I think I solved the problem by keeping all the connector stuff, PWs, extra batteries, etc., in a little "grip bag" that gets attached to the light bag. It is always in the way, which is a great reminder to make sure I have it ;-)
