Well, I survived my 53 mile adventure today. The ride out to Tustin was pretty mellow, all things considered. I got honked at once. Someone also yelled "get a car," which was completely perplexing because I wasn't even close to the car. Oh well.
The assignment was to take some photos of some people whose house was demolished at the lot where it once stood. It was about 11:30am when I started shooting so to get any decent light I had to over-power the sun with my Norman 200b. It worked pretty well for a single light source. I positioned them so that the sun acted as a secondary rim light.
