Save Hundreds!!!

Today I learned a very important lesson about shooting with hot-shoe strobes mounted on light stands: If the stand you're using has an aluminum hot shoe adapter, put a piece of electrical tape over the part where the flash's hot shoe contacts go. This two-minute, basically free tip ($0.89 if you don't own a roll of electrical tape) can save you hundreds of dollars--not to mention the anger and wasted time!

This tip was brought to you by Strobist, one of my favorite sites for common-sense how-to help. Add it to your feeds--you'll thank me later.
