Rolling With The BIG Dog Part 6 - Damian McGillicuddy

Page 1 of 4Sometimes those closest to us say something sometimes that cuts straight to the bone, whether it's meant or said in jest! Now it's very well known that my 'shell' is far from soft but my oafish business partner, who has to be forgiven as he’s Scottish and knows no better, made just such a statement not that long back.
Over a coffee whilst unpacking some kit sent to us by a manufacturer to see
if the Big Dog would be seen to use it, he said something to the effect of,
“I wonder how other less well sponsored or financed photographers get by,
we’ve got all the kit in the World”... Cheeky bugger! I immediately reminded
him that it had now’t to do with kit but rested firmly on my talent ;0)
Soooooooooo... .To cut a long story short, I’d talked the talk and now was faced with walking the walk! I set myself a challenge to create images that impressed with the absolute bare minimum of kit...real strobism.
Now, I’d never really been into speed light’s in a big way but, there again,
with Quadra and Qflash why would I have been, I’d recently read an article
in a magazine about the Nissin Di 866 speed light being the most powerful
hot shoe mounted gun in the world. Now, quite simply, you can never have too
much power, so I rang Kenro and asked if they’d send me some to try and
happily the lady from Kenro said “Yes”!
