On Thursday last week my new speedlight arrived… so, of course, I had to try it out. Yes, I decided to do some more water splash pictures, but with a two speedlight setup Here are some of the images.
Nikon D3200 ISO 400, f/11, 1/200s. To the right of the tank was my Nikon SB-600 at 1/16 power (with “barn doors” attached). To the left was the new Neewer NW 660III set at 1/32 power (with a makeshift barn door!).
The two shots below show just one result of dropping one mushroom onto a floating one. The dropped mushroom fell from about a metre above the water surface.
And here is an accidental shot of me placing the floating mushroom!
I should add that I was in two minds about purchasing the Neewer speedlight, it was cheap, but I needed a second speedlight, so I took the plunge (sorry!) I have to say that I am super-impressed with it. It’s well made and seems robust. The only thing I can find wrong with it is that it doesn’t retain settings following a power off. There might be a setting to retain settings, but I’ve not found it yet. The instruction book, in Chinese and English is a joy. I’m not being rude here, I find the translation a delight… and it makes me work hard to make full sense of it 🙂
