I tried a one flash rig for some family portraits today. It was a neighbor's party, so it was a good opportunity to experiment with no pressure to deliver. I positioned the subjects in open shade, used an sb800 on a raised lightstand at camera left for the main, and shot it through my new 45" umbrella. I used the su800 as the trigger. Here's a few samples. View attachment 98979 View attachment 98980 Lessons learned: 1. Using a tent stake and a bungy cord to hold down the light stand worked like a charm! Even with gusty winds, the light stand was as solid as a rock . 2. I need to carry a backup battery for my su800 in the future. I've only owned it for 6 weeks, but I've given it a lot of use, and the battery ran out of juice, necessitating a trip to the drugstore. Can't let that happen during a wedding! 3. Some of my pictures were pretty underexposed. I think I may have been pushing the limits of my sb800, trying to use it as the main through a 45" umbrella. I'll have to try it in bounce mode and see if the results are any better.
