You Win Some, You​ Lose Some

This past weekend I was taking photos at an event and I realized that my flash wasn’t working properly and I had a boat cruise to cover the following night so I went to Vistek and rented a Nikon SB-900 Speedlight.

The event went relatively smoothly and I thought to myself, “I gotta get me one of these” I went online on Kijiji.ca to see if I can find a used SB-900 as it is now discontinued. I found someone that had one but they were in Kitchener-Waterloo area. It wasn’t the most ideal scenario but desperate times call for desperate measures. I kept looking and I found a gentleman that was in Barrie, which is closer and had the flash for a lower price.

I had to follow up with some potential clients for photo shoots. So I emailed 3 of them and just my luck, all three made alternate plans. That really ruined my morning.

During the early afternoon, my friend and frequent collaborator Megan McDonald organized a bridal shoot with a team including a Makeup artist, hairstylist, videographer and models. We went to historic Main Street Unionville for the shoot. It was a beautiful day. I was in charge of the photos, while Shivani was heading the video portion of the project. Everything went well but I wasn’t in the best mood as the cancellations were on my mind as well as the thought that I was going to be late heading to Barrie because the shoot was running behind schedule.

After the shoot, I dropped the ladies back to the house and headed north to Barrie. The beginning of the trip was a lot of traffic but once I got outside of Markham it was a pretty smooth ride.

Once I got to my destination, I had a little trouble finding the gentleman that was selling me the flash but he was very understanding and helpful.

So with all that said, I didn’t have the best day but thankfully it was over and tomorrow is a new day.
