Learning curve

I learned something very important this weekend related to photography. Gadgets can get in your way of taking the best available photos in that they make you think in a predefined path, which may not be the most appropriate, or just plainly wrong.

I have been trying different things with off camera flashes and wireless triggers for the last few months and somehow got fixed with the idea that flashes belong to the tripod (one lame excuse being that until very recently I did not have a flash I could use on my camera as they were not specific for Canon).

But I am pretty much convinced that yesterday´s shots would have come out way better just with the flash mounted on the hot shoe. Hopefully I learned the lesson.
