Hi everyone, My first picture using a 43" white shoot through umbrella (strobist inspired). We were enjoying the wine too much and headed out to the yard to take a photo of the family a wee late/dark. I had to boost the shadows more than I would have liked. RAW file developed with CS3 using the new portrait mode. Reduced the shiny skin with clone stamp tool in photoshop; noise ninja plugin to sharpen. Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) I'm pleased with the shot (was the first one--the pictures that followed just didn't get the expressions I liked, but I got the flash/ambient exposure balance better). I only used a main light; two sb800 powering the white shoot through umbrella camera left high. Ideas of fill and backlight swirled in my mind, but I wanted to make it short and simple for everyone...so we could get back to the wine! Suggestions/critiques welcome. I have been toying with the idea of getting second light stand; super clamp and umbrella...but I am only a weekend warrior. Do you guys/gals crave more lighting equipment too? What is a good balance to stop amassing photographic stuff?
