Default My dog Luna, a 580ex speedlight and a 430ex speedlight - the toughest shoot I've ever

Please forgive the Palm tree trunk sprouting from her back, this is more or less to gauge the lighting

What do you think ...any suggestions or ideas on how to light dogs (or even get them to stay in the same place )

Learning flashes so C&C is always welcome

looks great...did you insert that rainbow in the back left corner...and you might want to clone out the spot of dust on the left hand side as well...but the photo itself of the dog is excellent...im assuming you had one flash on the camera, and the other one set to the side?

Yeah, I have to get to some sensor cleaning....it's been about a month.

Thanks, I'm really digging the effects that flashes are giving me.

Yes, it was the 430 as slave and the 580 as master. But, I've also been experimenting with my MR-14ex as master and the 430 and 580 as dual slaves.

Thanks for the comments

great to hear...that is one more thing i have added to my list of camera wants..430, either opteka or Canon battery grip, and a few more lenses...but im a poor college student. The flash and battery would probably be next, however not in that order
