    Well, The Big Brown Truck just dropped of part 1 of my Lighting package I put together.. 60" Umbrella, Stand, and Vivitar 285 ( I really don't want to risk the stand falling and killing my SB-800).. One of my 1st shots with this set up. I had the Vivi shot into the umbrella about 5 feet away from her. I am still waiting on Part 2 of my package to arrive (Friday).. Genisis 200, stand, and umbrella. More pics to come.. and a lot of experimenting until I master using these new toys..

    This is shot with the 16-85VR.. Love this lens!!!!!

    Nice shot and conversion Mike. Definitely use some sandbags on that rig as even a small gust will send it falling over and most likely kill the umbrella in the process.

    This is a really nice composition, well done. A slight sparkle from the eye might have been nice too, just a thought.
