Well I am pretty excited about some new photography goodies I received.
Yesterday I was at my parents and telling them about an upcoming photography job I had taking pictures at a father/daughter dance. I was telling my Dad how I needed to go buy a tripod and lights. He got this look on his face-- Mysterious smirk. He told me to go to the bonus room which is our storage area and bring down the old, brown box. So I did.
I opened it and there were some cool lights. My dad said they were my Grandpa's. He used them as movie lights. I plugged them in and they are BRIGHT! They got hot really fast so I am not sure if they will be practical to use but they are pretty neat. I am not sure how old they are but they look pretty old.
He also gave me a tripod that used to be Grandpa's. It is very sturdy but not too heavy. I am very excited that I don't have to go buy one now. And I think its really cool that they were my Grandpa's. My dad also used them when he used to be in to photography. Family heirlooms are pretty special!
