With no flash on your camera, do you ever have issues achieving focus in low light? I like the flash on mine for the AF assist beam

The YN-622's and 622-tx's have a focus assist beam, so I'm still covered.

so you are still able to use the assist beam from the off-camera flashes?

There's a focus-assist beam from the transmitter.

I added a YN-560 iv as a master flash for when I need one on-camera as well. Shot an event this weekend and loved the setup, but no focus assist on the YN-560.

I find the assist beam from YN products not as good as those from Canon flashes. The beams often don't intersect the AF points in the sensor.

These go to show your care in delivering a professional product. The lighting is really lovely.

Great Shots! Do you do a lot of burning on the final images? The reason I ask, is when I use my light-up: one flash on Camera and two OCFs - I get a lot of blow-out of the image, and would have to burn in the edges to put focus back on the subjects. like your #1...I would image this image was brighter?

I try not to rely too much on post. One for the reasons I don't like using a flash on camera, even bounced, is that my foreground will be (often) brighter than my subject.

Nice photos! Barn wedding can be indeed a challenge. I personally prefer to use ambient light as much as possible (especially with Canadian summer with long day light). I shot this outdoor barn wedding with a transparent tent (hence no bounce light) with ambient light and only use flash with dance floor. http://www.evolyllapho​tography.com …ings-near-toronto-ontario (external link) But again, off camera flash is super useful and great work Simon!
