Take Nothing But Pictures, Leave Nothing But Footprints

If your spouse (okay, statistically speaking for this site, your wife) found out how much you truly spent on photo gear in 2008, what would she do?

Why, she would grab one of your 5-section compact light stands and beat you to death with it, that's what she'd do. Fortunately, the light stand would still be usable for whoever bought it at your estate sale, because those little things are built like tanks.

The cops would first suspect your wife (they always check out the relatives first) and go about collecting evidence. And you'll be happy to know that a crime scene photographer would be using a little off-camera flash, as described in this quickie crime scene photography tutorial.
