"My first umbrella"


US
          

Hi everyone, remember I talked about ordering the stop shot system to advance my waterdrops. Well, got it, still haven't figured out how to sync it with my flashes yet, but was nice pushing a button and letting one or two drops at a time drip out and not wasting all the water using my primitive baggie system... Well, I am supposed to be working on a project for our evergreen conservancy. It's a group of folks who go out to these abandoned coal mines and help clean up the iron that forms when the mines fill up with water and reaches the surface. This group collects this iron before it reaches our local creeks. Anyway this year they were calling on local artist to incorporate in there artwork the actual iron..You can buy it in little, ironically to me, BAGGIES, right up my alley right?! Well, anyway, I took on the challenge and wanted to do something really cool, so I added the iron which was in a powdered form and mixed it with my water that I use in my baking dish where I have my waterdrops dripping into. Well, even though I wasn't able to figure out how to do my flashes, I went ahead and just used them in commander mode and guess what I got....I am estatic. This couldn't have happened at a better time. I was just hoping for one of my usual basic drop formations, but I got something that I am going to be so proud to frame and donate...Tell me what you think!!! And just think what I can do once I figure out how to use my expensive toy!!!!!!!!!
