Speedlight strobe setup

  1. I finally got my SB600 back from repair and picked up a couple of umbrella/stand kits from a local camera store. I set them up and put my SB600's in slave mode and set my SB800 on my D2h as commander and here are the results, my first attempt btw.

  2. OK, welcome to the party, Ash. This was my favorite. I can't figure out who has the cuter expression... the kid or the pooch.

    The pics are nice and sharp. It looks like you got a good copy of the 85/1.8from ebay.
     
  3. Thanks Frank, I greatly appreciate your comments. The lens is amazing, its absolutely mint and I am very pleased with it so far. I would appreciate and further advice you can give on positioning the strobes, angling the umbrellas, the height of the stands etc.

    Thanks again.

  4. Glad you got your flash back. I too like the image of the boy and the dog. Have fun with your new lens and repaired flash.
     
  5. Thanks, I intend to.
