Shot over the weekend for three long time best friends and just a guy friend. First 3 were shot with an AB800 into a PCB Large Octobox, last one just shot into an umbrella.

This one was just to experiment with the light so I missed the focus a bit.

thanks.. she is really a singer/performer who wanted to do some pics for her website. Typical story..from a small town....travelled here to pursue a dream. I had to tell her to sing for me while I shoot so I can get raw expressions from her... I got goosebumps my studio shook.. for a small petite young lady she had a very powerful voice....she sounded like Christina Aguillera. LOL

more of her:

Bee users, I'm getting a couple of 800's really soon and need to pick up some wireless triggers.

What's everyone using in here? I need to know what I should buy once I get the bees. I'm currently looking at Cactus V4's, Cybersyncs, or FlexTT5's (for the HSS). What's some reccomendations on any of the products in here?

the cybersyncs would be the choice to go with but if you dont have the cash to spend of them right now the cactus triggers work just fine.

I use the PocketWizard II Plus, however, if i was buying them now I'd likely go with cybersyncs. Not that I have any complaints ... my PWIIs ROCK! But the pricetag...

Money is never an issue. I'd rather buy once than twice.

I use PWs because it's the industry's standard.. everytime I use a studio or someone else's gear ...usually it's setup for PWs... so... there ya go.
