I’ve been horrible at adulting in general these last few weeks. With a huge takeover in effect, work life got the best (in fact, almost all) of me. When I hit home afterwards, the only thing I wanted to do was go full on vegetable. If it wasn’t accommodated by guilt, I probably would’ve been at it still. Luckily that little voice tore me away from a new found PUBG Mobile addiction. (BTW…add me – mavo187)
In the hopes of getting rid of a few cob webs on the blog, I thought I’d do an update post.
Firstly, I’m excited to have added 2 more things to my gear list. A Godox TT685N speedlight and XT1-n trigger. Check out the unboxing here. Formerly, my ability shoot poorly lit (indoor) events was stifled by my lack of a flash. In turn, my availability to do such a shoot would depend on whether I could secure one for that date or not. So, needless to say, I’m happy with the purchase. Saved about 2k by purchasing it abroad via Aramex Global Shopper again. (I know I sound like a fan boy… I am one) Bonus!!
Secondly, I did two portrait shoots recently. It was really a need for a creative outlet and it paid off.
For the first one, I wanted to test out the flash so I asked a buddy of mine. We visited two locations but unfortunately, with a total of 30mins shooting time and 2 security guard struggles, we didn’t get much out of our efforts. They weren’t having it. Lesson : research your location FIRST. What we did get to create was dope, though.
