Looks like a pretty great tripod Americo and from the prices I am seeing a real steal at $250.00 A little on the heavy side for carrying about but great for a studio setting. Are you practicing your strobist skills? I have noticed a few photos of Emily. A good place to go for some tips in lighting go to http://www.flickr.com/groups/strobist/
Good luck as this is not the easiest type of photography but maybe the most rewarding
Would love to see some photos of your area of the world.
Thanks for the suggestion! I do visit that area once in awhile, I followed it from strobist.com, however, as it may be known, I barely absorbed the mass information, and here are the results! I used to own a few strobes, One Alienbee's B800, an Nikon SB-28, plus one Vivitar 285HV, and including an Elinchrom with a 20 inch beauty dish, and a something sized elinchrom softbox, but I gave up, and sold them! I didn't go the buy stuff route, to not learn, I just wanted to accumulate the proper equipment in case I took the work as a photog field, of course that idea just floundered since I'd rather learn for private use, rather than attempt something I would be depended on, not that I wouldn't try! well, ok, thanks for the information, and hopefully I will come up with a semi great photo to share, and, well, show off!! Happy photography! -Americo.rodriguez 10/02/1976
