    So I just picked up my 2x Bowen Gemini II 500 flash heads :}
    Been very excited about this for a while.
    I've used them at college before and they are really good.
    These are the first few shots I took with just one of the lights set up with an Umbrella.
    Boy does it feel good to be shooting at iso100 and a decent aperature!
    Usually in my house it's so dull, even with all the lights on and lamps directly at the subject. I struggle to go below iso400 and thats usually between F1.8 and 5.6.
    So now I have this and lots of playing to do :D

    ***Ah yes. These are all straight from the camera apart from resizing and bordering***

    1) 50mm prime lens. 125/F11

    2) 10mm wide angle. 125/F8

    3) 50mm Prime. 125/F8

    I have taken so many more.
    I thought this was a nice small range to show.

    I also brought lots material today aswell for my backgrounds. :D

    I love my lights, they make such a huge difference in how creative we can be.

    Thanks man.
    Decent lights really are prciey over here, but hopefully I can do a few shoots and pay for the lights as quickly as possible.
    And of course..... have fun along the way.

    I'm hoping to be able to buy a travel pack within a couple of months so I can shoot on location....

    haha. I should just be happy with what I have for now :p

    Congrats on the new lights and backgrounds Gizmo. You'll be able to do a lot with two lights. Have fun learning all the rules of lighting ... and then breaking them! ;)

    (uh ... the rules, not the lights)
