Yesterday, however, just in time for senior pictures of my cousin Craig, I received my purchase of a light stand, hot-shoe mount, and three flash umbrellas. I felt like a kid in a candy store. I was able to use some good lighting equipment with the IDS, but I was never able to take it with me. With this $42 kit, I'm just about to the point of excitement where I could set this up on the sidewalk and ask people if they want their picture taken. I'm that pumped to use it. Maybe one day I'll be like fellow IU guy Zach Hetrick.
Seriously, if you know me, call me. I'd be happy to take your picture. I'm sure this new-toy feeling will go away soon, but it hasn't yet!
