"The Gordon" Flash Strap
I don't talk about equipment on here very much, but when I do it's about something that makes my life so much easier. I purchased two "The Gordon" flash straps from Mike over at lightenupandshoot.com. I got these because I have broken off the hotshoe portion of my speedlite before. These straps make it impossible to do that. I will mainly use them for on-location engagement/bridal portraits and photo booth lighting, but I can see using them for many different speedlite situations.
I was able to test this out this weekend at an event for a Lexington TV station and they worked great. I don't have to worry about someone knocking them over and breaking the hotshoe on the speedlite anymore. Here are a couple shots of them before the event started.
Here is a shot from the Event.
