Since I started shooting for 405 Magazine, I have found myself using my Nikon SB-800 Speedlights more and more. We shoot portraits on almost every shoot. Some shoots also require on-location product shots. I have never even considered bringing out my big studio lights, choosing instead to utilize the speedlights.

I'm making a change in my blog for 2018 -- instead of having the blog itself hosted on Google's Blogger, where it's been ever since I started, it's now going to be hosted on Wix, where my website itself is hosted.
The reason is simple -- I want everything integrated. Having to work within Blogger was never convenient. Having to upload photos twice -- once to the website and then again to Blogger -- was a real pain, and frankly I don't have time for it. I also think the
