Steve’s Xmas Party 1

Steve had a Christmas/holiday party at his house on Friday.  It was set up to be the afterparty of our work holiday party, however we ended up not going.  A few people showed up, Joe, Jen, and Jake brought the beer pong table, and we played some Rock Band.  All in all, a good night was had.

I’m posting this pic first because Matt’s expression on the right there is epically hilarious.

Also, this is the first time I’ve ever set up a lighting situation like this before.  Two flashes, one tripped by the Cactus v4, the other was optically slaved, set up across the living room/kitchen.

The top flash was a Minolta 118EX I believe, on the Cactus.  The bottom was the Phoenix, set to optical.  Oddly enough, I think the tiny little Minolta, with half as many batteries (2 as opposed to 4) and about 20 years older is brighter than the Phoenix.  Seriously odd.  I’ll meter them with my light meter later, probably.
