lately i've been taking my equipment out more often, it's nice and warm outside... so why not? but i rarely shoot outdoors with strobes... and i was wondering if i could get any pointers. i took this shot today for my 365, as you can see, my troubles are... -pre-focusing -getting soft, even light on the subject -decent background exposure... i tried underexposing the background to give it a more dramatic effect, so i set my aperture to... f/18. i tried using the umbrella to evenly, and softly light me up, but the umbrella ate up too much light... and it was at full power... so i shot this with a bare SB-600. even with that, i had to use the dodge tool quite a bit... anyone have any tips? thanks in advance!
