Let me ask a stupid question
Whn Im doing a Custom WB I have a Lastolite fold out gray card.
I hit WB on the D700 then take the pic of the Gray card and it flashes good
so that sright I know correct? Anything i am missing?
Using Elinchrom 600RX units and it seem slike my pics are orange and I am doing custom WB as well any ideas? Saturation? idk annoying to say the least
Using Nikon D700, Sekonic Meter, Elinchrom 600RX lights and ELinchrom 27" Beauty Dish
Hey I have a Question? when I Was shooting this Pic I was using my SB900 in REMOTE and commander in camera.
So If I am doing that how can I adjust the Flash in Manual??? And shoot with the Flash in Manual?
But where I am getting lost is setting the flash to properlly espose my subect then?
Should I use my Sekonic Meter for this? so what do I adjust the flash intensity? Sorry guys long day
SO the city will give me one sttin gbut then the subject another so then how do I use two settings?
Greg Thanks ok so meter the city with my D700 on Aperature (A)? then adjust flash? the power of the flash?
I have a Sekonic 758 DR meter as well should I use that or4 TTL? Flash on TTL or Manual Im just not grasping this :(
Thanks guys so can you give me a quick setting or something so I can understqand this?
I should have metered the background first? No this is not what I Wanted for sure ahaha

Did a fashion shoot in ATL yesterday all the pics and he is the pic with the problem this is straight form my Nikon D700
SHot on Commander mode with a SB900 and shoot thru umbrella in Aperature Priority and Manual ISO 200
Using a 70-200 VRII
What could I have done to make the pic perfect...
I will be doing a pinup type shoot with some models around a HOTROD. I will use my Elinchrom 600RX lights outside.
I think I may need soft boxes as I only have Umbrellas and a Beauty Dish/
Anyone care to help? THANKS in advance. I need 2 softboxes but Elinchroms are $$$$ also what size as...
I can pick this up locally for $1000 with a 18-55 and 135 Nikon Lens which I would sell a Think Tank top Loader 50 case, sling still in the wrap, all accessories with 372 clicks
I have a D700 but ws in need of a crop body as well. This a good deal or should I pass?
YEah I did on a few of the pics was experementing this is the first time i have shot bikes the MONSTER ENERGY shot was where I Wanted to be
I was so bright and sunny I really needed a ND filter or something
I have (2) Elinchrom 600RX's and the Elinchrom 27" Beauty dish as well
When you say use a shoot through umbrella I can do this as well the position you said behind the right couch? all the way back?
Shooting a young girl in this wihte room very elegan dressed BLack dress high fashion thing.
This room is not that big using Elinchrom 600RX or 2 of them not sure.
I want this room lit so would you use 2 with Umbrellas or 1 with a Elinchrom beauty dish?
Im doing a shoot of a young girl in an awesome studio all white couch etc very upscale but want some ambient light as well like the Lamps etc.
I normally set shutter speed on like 125 to 250 using a Nikon D700
I use Elinchrom 600 RX lights that I will sue in this shoot.
Just picked up a 300mm 2.8 Lens I rented from PPR in Atlanta for Road Atlanta Super Bike race this weekend. The filter holder at the rear has a filter in it
Can I remove the filter? It says 52mm NC? Do I need it in this lens? Typically I dont like filters inoput please
