Christmas Card Portrait Lighting

Discussion in 'General flash photography, lighting, and technique' started by ShadowFox19, Oct 3, 2008.

  1. Hi,
    Please excuse me, but I'm a Christmas nut and it's getting close to that time of year again! Anyway, this year, for the first time, I'm going to be taking our portrait for our Christmas card and I need some recommendations for lighting.
    I currently have one SB900, but have access to two SB800's if need be...and light stands. I was wondering what other equipment I might need to complete this? A softbox? I don't know. Also, are there any good lighting books out there you may recommend? Books with diagrams, because I'm not sure where to place the flashes.

    Thanks for all your help in advance!
