i will play.. i am not worthy tony.. but here are some of mine..

my soft box is the cheaper type.. but it does the job..

off camera flash is just a little pain to set up or drag on location, but the results are worth it..

The off-camera part should have been a little stronger and softer, but I like this one.

Love how you used the sun for a hair light. But the light temperatures are different.. :(

I wanted to share my OCF process with you guys..... others may do the same or even have something totally different that they do:

When shooting wireless, which is most of the time, we either shoot via the built-in IR of the Canon Flash or we have just started using Radio Poppers. We like both of these because they both allow for us to shoot using eTTL. This takes a lot of the guess work out of the equation for me. Also allows for the ability to shoot with High Speed Sync enabled.... meaning I can shoot in full sun.... at f2.8 and get great blue skies and soft backgrounds which I prefer.

Camera settings are pretty normal: Av mode most of the time...... if light is getting low I will switch to Manual to prevent the camera from dropping to slow shutter speeds. Evaluative metering..... I do not worry about ratios when dealing with the flash..... set flash to eTTL.... take shot.... review pic on lcd.... if it looks hot or not light enough..... have my assistant move forward or backward..... to me much faster than fooling with the controls..... although I can control with the controls.... if my assistant plays sick for the day....

I shoot with a 580 mounted on either a monopod or stand.... have been using LumiQuest Softbox..... but just started using the Apollo box..... really like it.... its bigger. I have a 550 mounted on camera to serve as the master flash. I never shoot in manual mode for the flash always eTTL.

Wanted to share and hope this can be of help to anyone wanting to try OCF.... once you start I don't believe you will turn back..... :)

Thanks for this. I just picked up a couple of 430ex's (to go with my 580), but I haven't gotten around to using e-TTL outdoors yet. Your WB looks really great...do you gel the flash at all?

Btw, here's some indoor OCF stuff:

These are both with th 430exII's controlled via a 580ex (e-TTL)
