Latest update on my new location lighting equipment.
Just had a quick play in the garden to see what the power output is like.
The light from the sun was reading on the light-meter of ISO 100, f8, 1/500sec
Set at full power I managed to overpower the sunlight very efficiently here are a couple of sample pics to show the difference between sunlight (left) and flash (right).
I’ve just taken delivery of a pair of Godox RS600P portable studio lights.
I Up until now I have always used speedlights on location. I have to be honest, even though they are highly portable, light to work with and take up no space while transporting I have always craved that bit more power that studio lighting gives you.
I decided to take the plunge and get myself some location strobes. Looking at reviews and getting personal recommendations I decided the RS600P’s were what I needed to go for.
I have only unwrapped the one and as yet I haven’t tried them out, but they look the business. Strong solid build, high quality meterials, well packaged in it’s own protective box.
Right now I have a power pack charging so hopefully before too long I’ll be able to do a review on them and get some sample shots up for you to see.

Hi, bit of a strange blog post from me but after weeks of frustration I have a solution.
Bit of background info. Due to having quite a few different email addresses when the new IMAGE IQ website was launched I went about inputting the server details to my various devices, phone, tablet, laptop etc.
Things didn’t go smoothly, so much so I lost patients and started using webmail to access my emails, not ideal but it works.
So now to the point of my blog post. Not all email clients are made equal!
I was using the ones that came with my phone (HTC M8) and tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab A). To say they the least they were inadequate, I just couldn’t get it to work, even after a discussion with my hosting company. So what did I do, I did a bit of a Google search to see if there was a different email client that might be easier to configure.
The first one I came across was BLUE MAIL, I expected to have to try a few different one before I found on that,
b) Was easy to use
c) Displayed info in a sensible way
I write BLUE MAIL in capital letters because it did all the above with no problem at all.
So my tip of the day is to give this android app a try, like me it may be just what you were looking for.
