    This is one of the first shots I made with my new Alien Bee light...the model is my dog, Muffy.

    Light was to camera left, shot through an umbrella. On camera flash at -2 FEC for fill & catch-lights.

    Wow, that looks great.

    I'd say Muffy looks like an excellent model.

    Thanks :D

    Alien Bee lights get great reviews all over the Internet...just about everyone that has them...seems to like them. Keep in mind that most AB owners are first time studio light owners though...a seasoned professional might prefer a more professional model. The ABs are inexpensive...or at least they seem to be a great deal for studio strobes...that's why so many first-timers have them...at least that's my opinion. They are also much smaller and lighter than typical studio lights because of a new electronic set up. This makes them easy to transport.

    I do think that Digital Matt has some, as well as a few others around here. I certainly plan to get more when I can afford them.

    The digital photography class I'm in uses ABs. It's a pretty professional studio, so I think Alien Bees can stand their ground.

    Nice shot. I like the catch-lights, even with the fur in the way. :p
