Using softbox outside for the first time

Went to Okeeheelee and used a softbox, monolight, and a DC battery.

Ordered a wireless sync that apparently was only meant for AC operation and found myself struggling to use the optical slave on the monolight. I had no idea the optical slave was next to useless in direct sunlight.

I felt like a contortionist trying to cup the slave with me left hand and swivel my canon 580ex flash sideways in the direction of the slave!

Needless to say I ordered another wireless trigger more suitable for DC operation…
