Cycling

Ok, I was supposed to cycle to 1U today but I woke up at noon. I have cycled there twice already but I have always wanted to try cycle there on a Sunday morning at 7am just to see the place without all the people and the cars. Maybe next weekend.

So instead in the evening I cycled around my neighborhood. Halfway out I regretted not bring a camera because today’s sunset was amazing. Hardly can you see clear skies in KL. So sunsets are normally non-existent.

I took the shortcut way so the whole journey was only 9.5km +-500m. One way to 1U is close to 12km. Now I know why people like to sweat it out at the gyms. Instead of feeling drained and tired and lifeless, you actually feel refreshed after a hard workout.

Wireless Flash Fun

Virtualmystic came over and brought his SB800 so we can try out some wireless flash. After hours of trying, we’re still trying to figure out how the camera sends the flash level compensation data over to the flash units wirelessly. If anyone have any idea please let me know. It’ll save me from having to open up a SB800 and spill its guts.

Side illumination. With a few flashes, good combination of lighting effects can be achieved. There’s a photo with 2 flashes on either side of the bottle. One firing at +3.0 flash level compensation and the other firing at -3.0. I don’t have the photo because it’s in the D80.
