Our first instinct was batteries and we made sure all our equipment had new, full charged batteries. Then we started to blame the Pocket Wizards. Yesterday we decided to bring different flashes and test this all out and see what the issue was. We had to get this sorted out, there is nothing more embarrassing than asking a client to wait while your gear isn't functioning. And nothing to destroy the creative juices faster than being frustrated with your equipment. We use a lot of off camera lighting. It suits our style and we enjoy it, but we are getting paid and we need reliability from our equipment. No excuses.

We'll be taking the Olympus and Panasonic flashes with us in the future to jobs even though we won't have the four thirds cameras. They can be our workhorse flashes, and I'm glad I never sold them! I don't think I'll rely on the Lumopro though, you can read back in the blog about my history with that flash as well.
Rant over! Thanks for dropping by the blog, I hope you have had a great weekend.
