I tried once without the grid and it was OK. I just taped the gel using some gaffer's tape. I think this is with the 1/4 CTO gel.

I think that looks good. Matches the back lighting.

Jay, try on axis, about a foot over subject, angled down, then shoot under the dish. Dish should be positioned as close as possilble to the subject, 3-4' max for head and shoulders.

Im not using mine outside like i would use it inside. Inside its 2-3 ft from subject, its a main and we use kickers and other lighting techniques for affect

Outside, im strictly using it as a fill light. Because of the high output of the light, i can back it 10-12 ft away and light the front of my subject the same as the ambient behind them. With primes, i have to use ND's to bring down the ambient and drastically lower the output and often turn the light away and feather in the fill lighting. you gotta play with it to get a look you like. With full daylight lighting, you bring the light output up to match the ambient and bring down the brighter sky lighting with the circulars.

my 5D3's have a gate speed of 1/200 and im triggering with pocket wizard Plus11's. Have not tried my flex and mini with hypersynch to see how far i can push the shutter speed. Thats the one thing i really miss about the 1 series,, gate speed was 1/320...thats huge outside

Here's a couple from last night. Please feel free to critique them. Sometimes I think they look good then I will look at them again and think something just doesn't look right.

I just got my first pair of glasses that I didn't think I needed. I apologize to anybody in the past year that I said their pictures were out of focus lol.

^^^ He would be out of dress code at the school where I work !!! No facial hair but nice shots though. I like the color you got in his hair. They might be soft but it might be the way you downsized them as well.

Same thing with the high school my daughter is in -- "boys are not allowed to have facial hair." At least the gals can! :p

No they can't. I couldn't have a moustache until last year. The principals make them go to the nurses office and shave it off.

Locky, I do like the shots and poses. His skin tone looks really really red though. Did he by chance forget his sunscreen?
