Single SB-600, Dark room...

Discussion in 'People' started by Firestorm_westy, May 2, 2007.

  1. Hi all,

    I was asked to take a few shots at a company party on Monday night...

    As it turned out, the room was really dark, with a low ceiling, so a single bounced sb-600 was all I had to work with.

    The ladies seemed really impressed with the results though, but I thought I would ask for a more 'contructive' opinion on where I could have improved.





    I guess you can work out who I work for now....


    The band were great...


  2. Did somebody say McDonalds? :biggrin:
  3. That obvious eh?!

    I work in Corporate Training in the UK!
  4. Great pics - The SB-600 works wonders :smile:
  5. I like them. The SB-600 worked great.

    What food did they serve at the party? :smile:

    Nice work Paul - the sb600 is an awesome piece of equipment. I love mine.
  7. Pics look fine to me! Looks like you missed focus on the last one though. The SB-600 handled the job quite nicely...

    Dude, I'm loving it. Did you try omni bounce?
  9. These look great, Paul. Nice work!

    Lol, Paul, when I read your topic, I thought "Boy, I hope he had low white ceilings to work with". I sometimes think that for on-camera flash work where there's an opportunity to bounce, the swivel head of the SB-800 or 600 is more important than all the TTL magic.

    Great shots Paul. I just bought an SB-600 a few weeks back and haven't used it that much. If I get results like this, I'll be well pleased!
  11. Try to get yourself a Stofen Omnibounce - I have one for mine, and it really does help soften the light. Well worth it.

    Thanks for your kind words btw!

  12. Thanks Alex... It was Lamb btw!

  13. Keith - I agree with the focus issue, shame, as she didn't seem to smile that often!

    Thanks for commenting,

  14. I have one already - Really helps to soften and spread the light. Thanks anyway.

  15. Thanks Fred... I have just ordered an SB-800 too. Can't wait!
