Do you use the Beast to light basketball?

Mark M. Hancock said...

Yup. I have for years. Sometimes I arrive late and don't have time to set it up, but I try to use it whenever possible.

I plan to get another unit this year. Then, I can cross light arenas, stadiums, maybe an entire rice farm. ;-}

Bryon Houlgrave said...

Just don't cross the streams. Whatever you do, don't cross the streams.

Sorry, my little reference to Ghostbusters.

BTW, PJ Quiz No. 11 made me laugh. I raced out of the Freeman building last night after a house fire. As ran to my car I felt naked. Not literally, as the temperature was -5 degrees with a -25 wind chill. But as I swept the dusting of snow off my car I realized I forgot the most crucial tool in taking pictures. So, my answer to No. 11 is to make sure you have YOUR CAMERA.

I believe the correct reply is, "That would be bad."
The PJ quiz question assumes the PJ has a camera and some form of recording medium (disk or film).
