    After purchasing a sb800 & sb600 me and my friend decided to practice with some off camera lighting. I think we did a good job for a first timmer with only a 2 hour photoshoot :D What are your opinions.

    Other then #9 which kept my eyes wondering....I like the rest of the photos.
    Very well composed, taken at the "right" time and good exposure.
    Looks like you have made your money worth on the flashs! ;)

    6 and 11 I didn't like, the rest are pretty cool. Either way it's a hell of a first attempt at off camera flash!
