    Having three flash heads in a wireless configuration really allows for flexibility. Putting the background flash (Group "C") behind a white sheet and bouncing it off the wall seems to do really well to brighten the background and eliminate any shadows.

    You'll have to excuse my subject. She's all I have.

    Very nice job! Wonderfull lighting. I just took the move to PWs still waiting on delivery should have them in a few days. Only 2PWs though so Im stuck with a single off camera flash for now. Please tell how the rest are set up for us newbies. Back fire to umbrellas or anything?:thumbup:

    Fill Flash "A" is on a tripod connected to the camera with off shoe camera cord 2 (needed to retain ETTL) pointed directly at face of subject. No Diffuser. Key Flash "B" is 45 degrees off to the right of her nose and approx. 18" above eye level bouncing off an umbrella. I had great results shooting through the umbrellas to.

    I'm still learning, but if I can help let me know

    I think the angles are good, you can just see the reflection of the umbrellas in the helmet. I really know nothing about lighting, but I think the angles and the intensity work pretty well.

    Excellent work TC. The only thing worth mentioning already has been. The umbrella reflections.

    Great feedback. I'll have to be more careful with reflections. I intentionally put the helmet on her to see how well the reflectives surface would effective the overall exposure. I'm just amazed how I can do this and they don't have that harsh flash feel to them.


    Icon- She is cute huh. :) My girl is a hair stylist so she has several of these around. She's finally gotten used to coming home from work seeing me playing with her maniquins. It's this or the dogs.
