thanks! it was easy to make...next up, im going to make some sort of kicker lighting lol
i got the idea for this and the portrait board from diyphotography.net
forgot to mention, i used dark green and dark red gels over my on camera flash to nix that flash but still keep the infrared to fire the off camera speedlight.....which was set to m1 so it would fire on first flash... hope tht helps and makes sense thought it was worth noting...
Great soft lighting and nice job with focus. You kind of shot up your nostrils, I would next time move the camera a little bit higher and include more of your neck and shoulders so you're not a floating head.
it was a neewer tt560 spedlight....the box was maybe 18 inches square and 8 inches deep..i assembled w packaging tape and used an old white tee shirt i had laying around...cost was nothing...i used a square of velcro t o attach to the speedlight head and put it on my tripod
...ill be hitting up cowboy studio in a month to get a backdrop and some lighting..i got my speedlite off amazon tho! 40shipped!
