First Post

Recently had a chance to take some location pics (Glasgow) of Rachel and Leigh-anne.
Whole session was struggle with bad weather - mainly wind which was knocking down my light stands. Second think is that my SB-80dx’s SU-4 mode (triggering by camera build-in-flash) failed to synchronise with SB-900, so I was forced to use only one light.
Lesson learnt and I’ve already bought flash radio triggers and when it comes to weather… oh well it was my own choice to move to Scotland.

As mentioned only one light used - bounced by Lastolite 80cm white umbrella - as close to model as possible, slightly on the left. Flash setup between full-half power.

Why setup your umbrella as close to model as possible you ask?
- you get nicer (softer) light
- more power from the flash - look at Inverse-square law
- or you use less power on flash = more flashes from one set of batteries
- bigger catch light in the models eyes
