    Great series of shots Dan, a set to be proud of. Absolutely great, I particularly like the yellow shot!

    All the best,

  • I recently stumbled upon your work and having lived in AK for 6 years I love looking at your work. I’ve been studying the use of off-camera Speed Lights lately and am looking forward to jumping into the fray! Thanks for the images and thanks for the motivation. Your blog is terrific and I’m loving the Photoletariat.

    Thanks for the comments, Brian. It’s always nice to hear from the locals. I checked out your site- another adventure junkie! Keep up the good work and I’ll do my best to keep the content flowing on my end. -Dan

    Glad to see someone local got off to one of the flashbus stops. My photography was totally changed by stumbling on to Hobby’s strobist blog about 4 years ago.

    I really need to try carrying my flash in my hand for candid shots like this – the light stands can be pretty limiting and not very wind friendly.

    Great stuff Dan!

    Thanks, Denny. I carry my flashes with me almost everywhere now- even took one or two with me when I went out snow biking this past winter. Agree, those Nano stands can be handy, but they’re certainly wind prone. If anyone is going to have their gear blown over by the wind, it’s likely going to be me.
