Thanks, no light meter. I use the same setup so much that I hardly need to test f stops, flash power etc. and I shoot tethered to a 23" monitor, image usually appears different from what's on the camera's LCD.

Great looking shots in this thread from everyone. I don't have a beauty dish but do have have a soft box. Can someone explain the difference between a beauty dish and soft box?

A softbox will give you flat direct lighting, where at the edges, fall off will be somewhat dramatic, it's very similar to lighting you would get from a window if the sun were to shine through it.

A beauty dish has a stronger and smaller hotspot and a smooth gradient in its dropoff zone. it's great for beautyshots when you want to bring attention to the face and then use fill from reflectors underneath to bring up the shadows. It also gives a round catchlight and is harder to blow over in the wind!

Good job retaining the skin texture. I just wish it was a bit sharper :(

Strobist info on your Flickr page says two lights were used. Not that I care but this is the one light BD thread ;p
