Strobist Idea No.01

Paul Cox has a great web gallery and tons of touch and talent, I really liked this image, he uses 3 flash units: Nikon SB800 camera left and right behind model with CTB filter, main light is Quantum T5-DR into a AB PLM 64″ brolly. We don’t have any power settings for theis setup, but camera is set to 85m + f/5.6 + ISO200+1/160sec, here is the lighting diagram created with our new beta lighting diagram creator:

Strobist Idea No.02

I like to watch volleyball, beach vollyball is a tough sport, Karl Pearce put in a set of images, this is my favorite (you can browse his gallery and choose your favorite). In this image, Karl used here 3 flashes  :

  • 2 SB28’s @ 1/4 power wide to both sides of subject
  • 580EX @ 1/4 power front on to subject

Here is the setup done with our lighting diagram creator:
