    A friend asked me to take pictures of her son for his first BDay. I was more than happy to oblige. :biggrin: I went to her house and lugged all my gear. After a a bunch of test shots trying to get the lighting right this is what I came up with. Let me know what you like. CC WANTED to help me improve!!
    I know I need to work on getting the backdrop flat on the floor. Didn't realize it until agter I viewed the images.
    Thanx

    The flash was off camera bounced off the ceiling, but I used the pop up to trigger the flash. As for getting the subjuect further away from the backdrop I had VERY limited space as these were shot in her house.

    Thanx for your input!!

    I thank you for your help. It took you mentioning the front flash for me to remember that I did in fact use it!! LOL I actually forgot that that was how I triggered the off camera flash.

    At first I was trying to use the Cactus triggers, but had NO luck with them. Can you tell me what the minimum distance would be for doing shots with a backdrop? If I'm correct you need at least 5 feed from subject to backdrop?
