Trigger a OCF from the international space station. Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield is there now with 6 Nikon D4s. Maybe he can help. :D

He spent all his money on the plane ticket, so he couldn't afford good camera?

Now imagine what you could have done with a flash to light up the other side.

You're right. A backlit moon does indeed look very cool. :)

Setup shot is near the bottom of this page (external link) but it's not that exciting. A 50D on a Sigma 500mm f/4.5.

Just ordered a 560 II last night, cant wait to get it!

What power setting where you at if you don't mind me asking?

Much appreciated. i was shooting at 100 ISO around f4. The YN was at full Power (1/1 is the ratio on flash). Flash facing more on the bush than the model, Your going to love it. I recommend to buy 2. There just so cheap and powerful.

Umm the 5DIII took the picture, the 60D is my friends camera who also took a picture.

Can we see both pictures to see if the 5dIII is noticeably better? :p

I like the photos and I think the explanation is a good surrogate for set-up pics. I know earlier (I can't remember the posters name)someone had a photo of a celestron telescope setup, but without the explanation that followed it didn't really help.

The thing about low key is you don't want ANY light spilling onto the background or onto the shadow side of the object. By adding the umbrella you'd spread out all the light from the flash and it's wrapping the object and you're losing the effect you want.

Try using the bare flash, zoomed right in so it's focused with tight beam. Even use a snoot if you have to. Also a bit of tweeking in lightroom to drop the shadows will get rid of the nasty creased backdrop and make it look solid black.

example using a snoot (bear in mind this was in a white room with no backdrop)

Ok thanks, think Tigger is better. The 70-200 looked better on my edit, till I just saw it now. I did not think low key was just 1 spot, so I achieved the look I wanted with Tigger, but that is not low key. Ho-hum. That settles that.

Low Key doesn't necessitate that everything but the subject be black. Traditionally, low key describes a scene where the dominant values are dark, it doesn't mean everything in the image needs to be black.

You're right, it doesn't HAVE to be, but it's obviously what he's going for. He got it with the Tigger shot but who'd want that creased material showing up in the lens shot?
