Waiting yet again… but in total nerdgasm

July 18, 2008

I had recently come across a new set of barn doors.  http://www.nicephotomag.com/the-latest/the-10-no-mod-barn-door-for-your-flash

Immediately after following on the link to B&H and ADORAMA, I quickly realised that I may have been the last man on the planet to know about this as it is completely out of stock.

I am in Bangkok, the Land of Smiling faces, and for all its charm and beauty, it lacks many essentials (read – photo related equipments).

So I find myself improvising a heck of a whole lot here… from snoot to gobos to bardoors.  I also found myself improvising on how I approach photography.

And that is a good thing.  See my photo of the wine glass… it is basically shot using available lights.

But once in a while when I see nice stuff like these relatively ineqpensive barndoors, I go gaga and turn into geek heaven.  Geek or Gik in Thai street slang means mistress by the way.

So here I am, yet again waiting, but waiting in pure nerdgasm state.

And by the way, I am going on another business trip… gotta make sure I am packed properly and I pay attention to my flight details.

Until next time…
