I try to use natural light as much as possible with some modifiers(reflectors and diffusers). It just makes the shoot much easier and faster that way and I've noticed that clients are less posed when not using flash. I love capturing the natural reactions and it's hard to do so when batteries are charging capacitors on my flash...lol

Don't get me wrong...I love using them depending on the shoot. :D

I hung a white bed-sheet from the rafters in my basement. Draped it over a small table below, and sat my cat down on top. Two of the lights are behind the sheet (bare), illuminating it. The other two are in front of the cat.

1 Canon Speedlite 430EX II, shoot-through umbrella, high camera-right
1 Canon Speedlite 430EX II, shoot-through umbrella, low camera-left
2 LumoPro flashes, bare, behind the sheet, one on the right and one on the left

Wirelessly triggered using one cactus V4 trigger and 4 V4 receivers.

A couple from this weekend. This was a setup I tried to explain to another member last week, but probably failed miserably.

Here's the setup.

I haven't added in the text, but the settings were - Main: metered at f/9, Fill & Hair lights metered at f/5. <space for further details>​

Without the hat.......​

Hmmmm, two things worth noting. 1) The original doesn't have blown highlights and 2) My hair is THAT white in places. Right, so here's numbers 3 & 4..... I'm gonna try the liquify tool to pull out thecreases on the shirt and I will get someone (another pair of eyes) to make sure the details are sorted before hand.





With the hat..... Added a silver/white reflector camera left (opposite Main, low on the floor) angled to lift the shadows from underneath the brim of the hat. ?? I think it helped.​

And yes, next time I will break out the lint brush before shooting. Also, this will be the VERY few times you see any kind of product in my hair. :lol:

Modified Basketball game: 1 Nikon sb-600, 1 yongnuo yn-460 II. Both on stands in corners of the gym (on the same end). Both set to 1/2 power, and bounced off of the white ceiling (25 feet high). Without the flashes I wasn't able to pull a fast enough shutter speed, and i was getting nasty shadows in the face. This setup works pretty good for me. Once I get my D7000 in april, It will be easier to shoot basketball though lol

Cool thread. Did this to help a small forum sell some shirts to cover operating cost. Single SB600 shot through a umbrella just off to the right. D300 using cyber synchs triggers and my new Sigma 85 1.4 lens.
