Clinton and the Tree


Clinton and the Tree
Originally uploaded by Ezra S F

We really wanted this tree in the photo. The problems: 1) illuminating the tree enough, 2) not over exposing Clinton, 3) hand holding the flash and trigger. Cranked the power up to full power. Wes aimed it at the tree. Clinton is essentially just getting the leftover light.

Sitting on a recliner playing with my new bank breaking toys.

Sunpak MZ440AF-CA on a light stand with a hot shoe connected to a PocketWizard II fired into a 60 inch umbrella with the reflector cover on it. Triggered by another PocketWizard II on my camera. Need to look at turning down the power or firing through the umbrella.

reCAPTCHA and Chrome

Was using this RSVP form with Google Chrome and found the reCAPTCHA was telling me I repeatedly failed the Turing test. After the sixth time, I decided it might be my browser, so I tried it in Firefox which worked fine.

Curious, I went looking for a possible problem between reCAPTCHA and Chrome. According to a post there, the Transitional XHTML DOCTYPE is the cause. Changing that DOCTYPE to Strict ought to fix the issue. Given the audience, I doubt there is anyone else using Chrome to fill it. So fixing it probably isn’t worth it to them.

Interesting. I’ll have to look into issues with Chrome and the XHTML Transitional DOCTYPE.
