    Well I wanted to have fun with my AB 1600s after I had them upgraded. Today I finally got that chance!

    These were taken outside in my backyard with two bees. One was shooting through an umbrella and the other was naked. Needed a ton of light into the scene to black out the crappy background I had :( 

    Anyways I liked how they turned out.

    key light was shot through an umbrella of to the left on the first 4, and the final 2 where to left (looking at him)

    The fill light was between 6 and 7 feet high naked.

    I wanted to black out the background because it is a white fence and tree's back there. So I had both on pretty much full blast shooting with an F20 to 22 I believe.

    Exif should be in the images as well.

    Also I should add I really have no idea what I am doing lol I simply shoot, adjust shoot, adjust till I get the look I am going for in the images
  6. These are excellent Matthew. I love the edgy feel to them.
