Just got permission from my better half and order the following.
1 AlienBees B800-Alien Green
2 AlienBees B800-Deep Space Black
1 AlienBees B800-Mello Yello
4 AlienBees Carrying Bag
1 Foldable Large Softbox (32"x40") speedring attached
1 Four Honeycomb Grids
1 Four-Channel Wired Remote
1 Backlight Stand
2 10-foot General Purpose Stand
1 13-foot Heavy Duty Stand
1 32" Silver/White Umbrella
1 48" Shoot-Thru Umbrella
Now that I ordered all this, I am worried I won't know exactly how to use all this stuff. So far I have only been using built-in Flash on my XTi and available light. I have mostly been shooting in AV mode.
Anyone has any good links on how to use studio strobes properly? What should the camera be set to, what lens to use? (I have the kit lens, 50mm 1.8, and recently ordered Sigma 55-200mm F4.
Thanks a bunch.
