    I finally got him to sit still long enough for this shot.

    3 SB600's, 1 SB800. There are some distracting shadows but I know what caused it and how to fix it. :smile:

    Maybe I got 2 shots today.

    Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available)
  3. Either shot would have been good enough to make my day. Two is a treat! What beautiful children :smile:

    Very nice work. Which lens did you use???

    Thanks. I used the 28-70 for these. Now that my D2x is back I have to decide between carrying my primes or adding a 12-24 to the list in my signature.


    Thanks. They are quick, thats why I use flash and shutter of at least 1/250th with my son. The mothers curse works. I had one just like me. LOL

    Two SB600's,one on either side.
    One SB600 bounced off of ceiling for a mild hair light.
    One SB800 on camera to put more light in the eyes.

    Never accuse me of thinking! :biggrin:
  9. WOW......look at those BIG brown eyes!! Nice shot!!!
  10. All that light equals a flat image. Try a key off to the side, a hair light and a reflector opposite the key to get more modeling.

    IMO, of course

    I needed all that light to overpower the flourscent lighting in the office. This was done at our sales counter and took about 30 seconds to setup.

    I prefer flat lighting on children compared to the moody lighting you get with the setup you described. That is the setup I use for studio shots where a mood is implied. Just my opinion though. :smile:
  12. Nice shtos what beautiful children, great use of the CLS system
