    Had to try my just received Better Beamer. This fella obiliged :smile:


  2. Hey Ben

    Fortunately your Better Beamer kept you at a respectbale distance and in this case that is good. These image came out very well. How does one hold the better beamer in front of your flash?

    Nice shots, Ben! I think I'd want an even longer focal length when shooting one of those critters! Good thing you were in front of him! :smile:

    Great images.

    Skunks are really pretty animals.

    Well done for sure
  5. Luv the second shot, light wasnt over powering, just right! I have yet to try my BB, what do you think of it?? Nice shots and great timing in trying it out, not sure how close one would like to get. LOL

    Yuk! Just kidding, nice shots Ben. Gotta get me one of those BBs, because they sure make a difference. How many stops did you dial the flash back for these?

    They are cuties, in spite of their stinky reputation. You'll like the BB. My only problem using mine is when the subject distance changes from far to near (or vice versa) from shot to shot. You have to stay on top of the flash EV comp in such cases.

    Hey Gordon
    this fella was so busy looking for food paid me no mind
    the beamer held on SB800 with a velcro strap on the head of the flash.
