    He looks sad. He is prolly not keen to stand model? Runs in the family?

    I wouldn't say sad, but probably right about the modelling though.

    Wow. that's cool David. Mind if I check out your gear! It's all new to me, but I'm looking to use some off camera lighting this year for audiopollen.

    Thank Steve. I'll have my lighting kit with me on the weekend meet (Jan 4th to 7th). However, here's a link to the kit I got:

    The Starving Student Wireless Kit (SW1).

    Thanks David.

    I like how they get to the essence of what's needed without the hassles.

    They've definitely got a good set of kits, and the prices aren't bad, given the price of these things in Australia. Shipping was about $50 US, but even then, it's still very reasonable.
