Question about Broncolor 122030 Ring Light Flash

Open Question

I used my broncolor ring flash connected to Grafit A4 power pack in a fashion photo shoot two days ago. For about an hour, it worked well. After taking a ten minute break i noticed that i left the power pack turned on. When i resumed shooting, after about 5 consecutive flashes in an interval of 4 seconds, the ring flash suddenly went off. I reset everything by turning the power pack off and on but i noticed that nothing changed except for the blinking power display of lamp on the power pack. I tried to changed the power pack to Topas A2 but just the same, no flashes and still with blinking power display on the power pack. please help determine the problem

My transformer has just stopped working. was fine 24 hours ago- is there a trip switch? Model LV300/LV300T

There is no trip switch, or reset button for ML series Intermatic/Malibu power packs.
Your question shows LV and not ML, so there might be a different model number, but generally power packs are not a repairable item if power pack is broken.
Add a comment with in-focus photo of your timer for possible identification difference between ML series and your power pack.

Dropped phone in water, any chance of retrieving photos if phone won't even power on?

There is a chance. Pull the battery pack immediately. Dry the phone thoroughly. You can bake it at a very low temp for a couple hours (100 - 120 degrees F). You can also use a blow dryer or the dash board of your car on a warm sunny day.

Reinstall battery pack and see if it will power up. If you pics were written to a microsd flash card, you could just remove the card and retrieve the photos using a flash card reader.

If the phone will power up, you may be able to connect with USB and recover your photos.

Good luck.

I was somehow roped into shooting a friend's night wedding this weekend, even though my photography "expertise" is entirely limited to shooting in natural light. I am a total amateur (and my friend knows...

First, you MUST practice with the flash before you shoot the wedding. If at all possible arrive 2-3 hours before the ceremony with a friend/model to pose for you so you can practice with the settings until you understand what will and will not work.

Use manual exposure settings (e.g. 1/60th at f5.6) on the camera, and let the flash work in automatic mode to provide the light needed to shoot with the manual settings. Don't try to use flash on subjects further than about 10-15 feet as it won't provide enough light to go that distance - light falls off according to the "square of the distance", so the amount of light you have at 10 feet is 1/4th the light you have at 5 feet (rather than 1/2 the light like you might think). Practice with your model to learn how far your model can be before the flash falls off too much. To shoot at the greatest distance, open the aperture (e.g. f2.8). You can use a smaller aperture only when your subjects are fairly close.

I can't give you exact settings for your flash on a Nikon as I'm a Canon shooter. Look in your camera manual and the flash manual for iTTL.

Do NOT try to shoot in aperture priority. The camera will use a very slow shutter (appropriate for that aperture) to gather the background light, and the flash will provide "flash fill" and you will get motion blur from your hand-holding the camera and from the subjects moving during the long exposure.

Most ministers don't allow flash photography during the actual ceremony, so you need to shoot in available light during the ceremony. Normally you can use flash during the procession to/from the altar, but once the bride reaches the altar you need to stop using flash. If the ceremony is in a dark location (dark church) this can be very VERY difficult. You need fast glass, an f2.8 (or faster) lens for this and will need to shoot at the highest ISO your camera offers. You may want to return to the rental place to rent a fast lens if you don't have one already.

Obviously you need to stay ahead of the action. This means you need to get into the aisle near the end of the service and shoot the kiss from that location, and then shoot the couple as they proceed down the aisle after the ceremony.

If at all possible, take posed photos BEFORE the ceremony. Try to have a 1-hour window to take these photos that ends 1-hour before the ceremony starts. If you can't take the posed photos before the ceremony, try to limit the after-ceremony photos to just a few groups - some photos of bride and groom, with the whole wedding party, with the bride's family, the groom's family, and everyone (all family members and wedding party). Take 3 or more shots of each group so you can swap in eyes or faces if someone looks great in one shot and someone else looks great in a different shot.

Good luck!
