    Guess what I got for my B-day?!?!?

    Before my B-day dinner, my g/f took me out to the camera shop and got me a Canon 580ex II flash!!! (I was *VERY* shocked!)

    I haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but I'm looking forward to giving it a go..

    I know there is going to be a lot of trial and error with it. Anyone have any advice or know of any tutorials that may be helpful for getting started?
    Cheers,
    Greg
