Just keep your eyes open even if you can find a low shutter count 5d mk1 as they are a bargain and an amazing camera, a friend of mine shoots weddings with a pair of them and the results are simply stunning.

The 5dc was my original plan. For the wedding I went to on Sat. the photog used a 6d with a 5d as her back up. Since I'm not dumping my 60d, I'll just keep my eye out for a deal/steal. ;)

Speaking of weddings with a 5Dc! lol

Here are some photos from my cousin's wedding that I took for funsies. I told my cousin I'd take some photos of him and the guys getting ready... but of course by the time I got there my cousin was pretty much ready. Haha.

All with my 24-105.

I absolutely adore this camera and I do agree that it is a bargain. The only thing you need to get used to is the outdated AF system... but the images I've seen from this camera really push that issue out the door. I really have no complaints about it.

As usual, any comments about these photos are welcome.

Hoping to get some suggestions and advice if I can.

Did some shooting of a friend's band over the weekend at a bar. A typically poorly lit bar and all I had was my on-camera flash. I got some decent shots anyway but I did have some that gave me fits with the ambient lighting. More specifically, the band's stage lighting.

So I'm looking for a bit of insight here. In most of my shots the flash seemed to overpower the ambient stage lighting, but not in all of them. Like the sample shot below.

My poor buddy Ron does not have a glowing red dome, as shown in this picture. And for some reason it wasn't nearly as big a problem for the other band members. I was able to make at least some improvement to the shot in PS but I'm wondering if there's something more I can do to eliminate the problem in-camera.

So would having the flash raised higher maybe help? Different shutter speed or aperture? How about shooting with something other than auto W/B? The stage lighting was LEDs and they seemed pretty bright. Or am I expecting too much of the flash when dealing with all of this mixed lighting?

Rich, I bought a 43" Wescott umbrella kit and it is one of my favorite photography related purchases. There is so much to do with it and play around with.

As far as my setup, I have the Yongnuo 602 triggers, and some cheap umbrellas I got on Amazon... and invested more in the light stand and Umbrella adapter. Here is the specific setup I used...

Light Stands http://www.amazon.com …o08_s01_i00?ie=​UTF8&psc=1 (external link)

Adapter http://www.amazon.com …o08_s00_i02?ie=​UTF8&psc=1 (external link)

Umbrellas http://www.amazon.com …o09_s00_i00?ie=​UTF8&psc=1 (external link)

I also have these but did not use them in the shoot http://www.amazon.com …o08_s01_i01?ie=​UTF8&psc=1 (external link)

Thanks for the ideas. The little adapter is interesting. I'm no mechanical engineer, so I was wondering how to attach the flash to the stand. I've read people mentioning a "cold shoe" which could be used to mount a flash.

I was playing this weekend around 2 in the afternoon, but under some fairly thick shade, and my 60D could only optically trigger my 430 EXII about half the time! I'd heard they had problems in sunlight but I thought I'd be OK. I'm also thinking my 70-200 and the hood may have blocked the flash line of sight. Not certain. So, I'm figuring wireless triggers will be in my future too.

Your situation reminded me of something along these lines:

Although, I'm not sure how effective it would be for your particular situation.

One of my first posts here was just about the same situation: band, no flash, and too bright colored lighting. Doesn't the red channel seem to saturate/overexpose before the blues and greens in Canons? You may have very little luck when the red lights are on.

It's a tough scenario. I never tried it again! :D
