Two days ago there was a power failure at my locality, I knew it was regular 2 hour power cut, so I had to kill time or rather make it creative.
Now for the set up
My room was dark, Things I had
Canon EOS 500D
Canon 18-55MM F3.5 – 5.6
Canon speedlite 580EX
Cactus wireless trigger
brown carton box
Let me start from the table, I placed the brown carton box on one corner and placed Canon Speedlite 580 EX inside the box along with Cactus wireless receiver attached, placed the incense before the box for the smoke
Now on to the camera, attached Cactus transmitter and mounted on the tripod, framed the scene, set the camera in manual mode, Aperture F9, shutter 1/125, Don’t forget to set the lens auto focus to off, and try to focus on the edge of the box. One more thing on the camera you need to set up for remote control.
Check the Cactus wireless and transmitter are in sync, try trigger the transmitter while the Flash is turned on.
Move to your position and trigger via wireless remote.
If your face is getting bleached i.e over exposed, try to move little further away or decrease the flash power
The brown box did a wonderful job of warming up the smoke.
A tap on the box triggered the dust, It was in dust for a long time.
Yes it is one of the new malls which was recently opened on the busy populated Nelson Manickam road. Ample car parking space, Malls are huge with variety of products. Some products looks pricey. One thing to mention, they are on the cost cutting mode, this huge mall had few fans here and there no centralized Air conditioners.
I was only able to spent just 10 minutes, I sweating like hell. We came out had Ice creams, The Indi cafe looks good, didn't have the mood to try as I was already sweating.
