i have one strobe light, and a small minolta flash. im trying to do the effect of a really over exposed backround and have the subject exposed correctly. i cant figure out where to put the lights to get a good exposer. see the strobe is an excaliber xp 1600 and it goes off when my other flash goes, i also have a flsh meter too. but the little flash has a cord that is attached to my camera at all times so that flash can't go very far from me. any way here is what i have done. i had the little flash on the left pointing at my backdrop, witch is just some fabric from walmart, and the big flash is off to my right with a reflecting umbrella pointing at the subject.. i don't know what im doing if you could point me off in the right direction that would be great.
