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:

Frank,

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.


Biggstr6,

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

Four lights? Mind sharing your thinking here?

Woody
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:

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:
