As we get deeper into December, the days are getting shorter and the countdown to the 21st of the month continues. Now why is December 21st so special? From a figurative stand-point, it is the shortest day of the year. So with the days getting shorter, the hours of available light are fading away with them. With this in mind, I decided it was time to buy an external flash for my camera. So after spending a few days of contemplating what to get, I ended up settling for something cheap to learn the basics with. A Canon Speedlite 270EX to be exact. Yesterday, I finally managed to get out to Grouse for the afternoon and early evening and get some shooting done. I spent most of yesterday shooting in the newly opened Quiksilver terrain park with fellow tight-pant wearing skiers, Bryce Mclean and Peter Warkentin. So without further ado, here are the results from my first day of shooting with the new flash.
Bryce Mclean with a shifty-on to the down box.
Peter Warkentin, same trick, different feature.
