Ahh, thanks a bunch. Im going to try it this week with my 135mm 2.8 and see how it goes. I have a SB600 as well but Im using those cheap Ebay triggers, so its all manual for me :)

Where can i find a good deal on a brolly box?
I got mine on ebay from Amvona. Here's a similar listing.

Hey, Joey, some of those were done with a brolly box, but others were with a white shoot through umbrella, which works nearly as well. They give the same soft light, but are just less efficient.

Just a note on a great one-speedlight diagram - if you do not have a window or other ambient light for fill, try to find some type of reflector (or just buy one I guess). A big reflector positioned correctly should give you the fill you need.

If you do use a reflector for fill, the same rules apply as with other light sources --- generally, the closer to the subject the better.
