2022 Reading List

Jan 23, 2022

I really want to be a person who dedicates time to reading more. Whether that transpires to be via audiobooks, e-books or good old analogue paper, this is the goal for 2022.

The Arrival of the Cactus V4s (+ my new photo wall)

Jan 5, 2010

That's right! After five weeks of waiting, my Cactus V4 wireless triggers have finally arrived.

Up until now I've been restricted to a coiled TTL cable, which meant I couldn’t be much further than a metre away from the flash, which was somewhat limiting. But now - fingers crossed - that’ll be a thing of the past.

Huge billboards, television adverts, plastered across train & tube station walls, striped across buses and bus stops. You name it. New Moon - the next installment in the Twilight series of books & films - is set to be massive.
