I've been trying to figure out how to set up a "portable studio", which means using my flash off-camera... something every Nikon CLS enabled camera is designed to do. Every time I requested advice, someone would suggest I check out Strobist.com. I finally did, and it's an awesome place to learn about off-camera flash. Here's a link to their mission statement. http://strobist.blogspot.com/2006/02/welcome-to-strobist.html I've since completed Lighting 101, and think it's a worthwhile review, even for experienced flash users. Here's a link. http://strobist.blogspot.com/2006/03/lighting-101.html My only problem with the Strobist is that they refer you to a Flickr site to discuss lesson plans and results. I'm hoping that there are enough of us with an interest in this topic to maintain a lively Strobist thread right here on the Cafe's lighting forum. Thanks to a great recommendation by greyflash, I've purchased an SU800, and it's made controlling multiple off-camera flashes a breeze. Here's my first finished product... a shot of my bride. My setup was Main light was an sb800 on a stand to the right of the camera. It was also in ttl mode, and fired through a white umbrella. Fill light was an sb800 on a stand directly behiind the camera. It was also ttl mode, set at -1.0ev, and fired though a diffuser dome. Hair light was an sb600 mounted on a light stand. It was set in manual mode at (I'm guessing) 1/64th power, and bounced off the white ceiling. Please feel free to join in, show your results using off-camera flash(s)... along with a description of your setup... and discuss Strobist off-camera style photography.
