    i bought my sb600 today and have not really messed with the settings. but i also went and bought a cheap clamp light. i set up in my living room to see if i could get any kind of decent lighting. i know the shot itself isnt perfect (had to get into position fast) and my mug might be hard to look at, but im looking for tips on how to improve my lighting. i plan on getting more lights soon.
    thanks

    I think the red backdrop is reflecting a LOT of red light. Which may be why you got them cherry cheeks, lad.

    Checkout seamless background paper by Savage. A medium gray can be made many colors. You just put different colored plastic in front of a light you pointed at the paper.
