Jamies Fine Dressings

These are a few photos from a shoot I did a couple of years ago. The client is still using them and has just asked me to produce a couple of large display banners. I had my son, a graphic designer as an assistant and used off camera flashes triggered with the Canon inbuilt wireless system, I now have Pocket Wizards. I had just purchased a dozen high quality AA batteries and had charged them up the night before. I spent a bit of time on the web researching rechargeable AA’s and the ones I purchased came highly recommended and were quite expensive. About half way through the shoot my speedlights started miss firing and then stopped all together, they all had flat batteries. I thought no way, new batteries, fully charged, must be something else. I had a full set of older cheaper AA’s that were also fully charged, and once they were fitted my problems were solved. I did some test at home and found that the batteries were discharging themselves after about 24 hours. I contacted the supplier and sent them back. Turned out that there was a complete shipment faulty, the supplier was most grateful that I brought the problem promptly to his attention. They had not sold many batteries from the faulty shipment so the recall was only small. This episode certainly taught me the benefit of having backup equipment. These dressings are absolutely the best I have tasted, here is a link to the website, Jamies Fine Dressings.
