Answer is...drum roll please....a speedlite, bracket and soft box! But for short, an external flash and diffuser ;) That makes Alex the winner of the guessing game!
Yes, I do shoot sessions in natural light and it takes A LOT for me to shoot with flash. But for maternity/newborn sessions I shoot mostly with available light and sometimes I need to "create" more light to bounce off of. I also bought this toy for weddings I'll be shooting this summer/fall. I already had a slave flash but it just wasn't giving me the results I wanted.
Now I have to work out my arms because this toy is heavy! ;)
Anyway I can't wait for the moment I put this toy into good use.
I'm waiting for my new business cards to arrive so a post about that as soon as they arrive!
