Been messing about with some mussel shells

Setup

Couple of white fibre boards, flash hanging on radiator by a Joby GorrilaPod and triggered by an RF-602

Results

I like this in theory... I definately think it has a lot of potential. IMHO the shadows are a little harsh - have you played with a softbox for your flash yet? May be just the ticket.

Also, there are some small black specks that should be cloned out...

I do think that the colors and comp are fantastic!

How do u trigger that wireless flash to flash from a distance like that? with some kind of wireless reciever trigger thingy?

He told you with this:

"flash hanging on radiator by a Joby GorrilaPod and triggered by an RF-602"

That's what he meant when he said "triggered by an RF-602". Canon's ST-E2 will do the same, but while also maintaining E-TTL metering.

But, the ST-E2 requires line of site to trigger the flash. RF triggers do not.

Well I'm not intending to start any argument about which is best, as they each have advantages. In a small indoors environment like the example shown, line of sight is not necessary with the ST-E2, as reflections of the IR signal will still enable it to work fine. Outdoors in daylight, the RF triggers soon start to show their advantage.

If you're shooting indoors, line-of-sight isn't really necessary for triggering... The RF's usually bounce off the walls/ceiling to trigger the strobe... Now if it was outdoors, that's a whole different animal...

:D

The rf-602's are so handy...

Isn't that to stop them accidentally getting changed?

If you are able to "accidentally" changed them, hats off to you! I need a small screwdriver to be able to switch them ;)

Yeah, but only for shipping. It is the same as the clear (or sometimes blue) stickers/plastic film that comes on led screens, chrome trim, etc. How else can you choose other combinations without removing the protective coating sticker?

It wouldn't take much to change them, simply rubbing up against something else whilst carrying them in your bag. As for how you change them with the sticker on, most people don't need to.
