This is the first time I use my lightstand/umbrella ensemble. Wife was at work, kids were asleep, and I was bored out of my face.
This was manually focused. I used 2 lightstands with 2 speedlights. One @ a high 45o (sb700)angle and the other at a low 45(YN467) degree angle. 1/32 power on the top and 1/16 on the bottom.
Couple of issues:
- The room was black, so I used TV light to try and focus. Wasn't happening so I had to manually focus. I had to use one of the light stands to focus on and then move it into place.
- No modeling light sucks
- I do not have a light meter, so all I could do is a bunch of test shots. Time consuming.
- Need a reflector holder lol.
Any tips to make self portraits less of a pain in the ass are greatly appreciated.
