Night Caching Raid in Brampton.

Dusk at the Bird House

Friday night is night caching night, we hooked up with some of the other members of the Order of the BFL and, after marking a birthday at Tuckers, we went night caching in Brampton.

I’d already been to this cache, so instead of sporting the GPS, I zipped ahead to stage two of the multi and setup two flash units to capture the bird house in a different way from the daytime visit I had here a month ago.

The rest of the night I wandered around trying out various manual exposure and flash exposure combinations – both handheld. I’ve also grown a bit more comfortable shooting at ISO 400 knowing I can get a good exposure when I add a bit more available light.

A great resource for off camera lighting is strobist.com, and I recommend reading “The Moment it Clicks” by Joe McNally once you’ve finished the Lighting 101 and On Assignment sections.
