Some strobe photography. Still playing and trying to understand lighting. How did I do?
I like them, good work. What lighting setup did you go with?
not bad man..watch those shadows on the wall though
Thank you for your reply
Im shooting through an umbrella with the sb600 off to the left side of her. it was set on manual at about 1/64 at 50mm.
Yea one of the things I was trying to avoid. I think its time for a second flash.
Actually, you can start by moving her away from the wall. That would lessen the shadow and you wouldn't lose anything since there is nothing on the wall.
Hmm, lol never thought of that. Thanks I'll try that.
You can do quite a bit with just one strobe. Check out the strobist site for some ideas.
I'm sure he mentions it but foam core boards make wonderful and cheap reflectors. As I tell a lot of people, learn to use what you have and be as creative with your equipment as you are with your photos. It will save you a lot of money in the long run.
Awsome read, Should keep me busy for a while thanks.
Read Lighting 101 and Lighting 102. Lighting 101 covers gear and understanding light. Lighting 102 covers the more important stuff like light position, angle, apparent light size, specular highlight control and balancing flash with ambient.
I can never get enough of reading of photograpghy! Thanks Samanax
