Nice work. I looked up the specs of your flashes to compare to the 580ex & 420EX that I have. The Sunpaks have a guide number of 120 compared to 138 of the 420EX. You sure seemed to get a lot of coverage out of them and they lit your car up really well.

How were you triggering them remotely?

Thanks & nice work!

Ok, got a couple wireless remote triggers last night.
Here's my first go. Used an OLD nikon and old Metz flash. Around half power (I think)

Thanks! Thats a friend's car actually. I'm using Alien Bee CSRBs' to trigger them. When I do out door shoots I usually shoot at 1/2 or full so that I could get a good amount of coverage. I've used these Sunpak flashes for a while and been really happy with them.

Heres one for you all to laugh at...

I've been messing about tonight with triggers and my 580, bearing in mind this is all new to me! All handheld.. Wanted to set the 580 off a few times walking around the car but couldn't work out how. But when my mate realised he only brought his small tripod, it was pointless anyway, hence why there handheld. Not exactly 'WOW' material, but its fun learning!:D

Damn, you're gonna make me blush! Thanks mate! Always good to know someone besides yourself appreciates what you do. :)

Here's my first attempt at strobe lighting during daylight and 2nd attempt with Off camera flashes. Is it to over done? what do you guys think?

I think the lighting on the side panels is pretty good, but you lose a lot when you get to the front of the car. In particular the hood of the vehicle. You need to adjust your strobes to get some light on the hood as well as the roof line line to give you some separation for the background (use multiple exposures if you have to). Other than that it's very good work, especially taking into account that it's only your second time with OCF.

Thanks Caspita! I'll be mindful of this next time I head out and make sure I seperate the whole car and keep it more evenly lit.

Thanks for the advice :)
