Meet my gran, on my mums side. She's my only surviving grandparent, and I only really see her at Christmas. This year I took a few photos of her with my D70 and she seemed to enjoy pulling a variety of stupid faces. However, as I wasn't really set up for portraits and was really only experimenting with a very basic flashgun, only this shot came out well, where she is posing with a not-so-stupid face.

I was considering buying a Speedlight SB-800 for the D70 but having toyed with this flashgun I don't think I'd make the greatest use of the SB-800, no matter how much more controllable it is than what I have currently. No, I'm now eyeing up the tripod catalogues...
