Personal Trainer:
QUOTED IMAGE

Derweissehai

your personal trainer looks like one of my tennis friends in college !! btw does he play tennis? and does he have a tennis blog? and does a lot of racket review?

Phamster - no. 4 is a great shot! Where was your strobe positioned for that one?

thanks !! that one was on a stand about 3 feet aimed at thier chest area.. about 7-10 feet back, bare flash, with my flex and flex PW combo, fired in manual mode with high shutter speeds..

and the one on the right was the same flash settings, but i dragged the shutter longer to pull in the available light that was there under the trees.

it turned out great !! in need to do this more in my weddings..

Here are a couple from a recent shoot I did with a friend of mine. All were taken with a single strobe shot through a white umbrella.

When she showed me this dress, I immediately thought, "That's going up against the sunset." It worked out perfectly.

I love this shot. Which strobe did you use for this?

I went through this whole thread at least a couple of times and there are so many amazing shots here.

I like these Jeff. They don't look like they're lit by strobes. Nice natural looking light. Cool beans!

Thank you sir....speedo beauty dish about 10 ft away to camera left. Underexposed the background by only a stop or so, to keep the background visible (given the location here was so cool).

Certainly not what a BD is "meant" to do, but the bd is just too nice for location work to pass up. Simple, relatively durable, small enough to not act as a sail, and damn quick to setup.

I'm with you on that Jeff. I've come to love the beauty dish for location work. Sets up instantly and you're ready to rock n' roll. Very versatile modifier.

Agreed. But it sure is a pain to carry there! :)

I find it to be quite convenient. You're carrying around the massive Elinchrom dish. I have the Speedotron 22" dish and the Kacey grid and bag. I love it.

yep, I really need to get the kacey grid/bag....as of now, the only thing protecting my bd is the pyrex lid that goes over the elinchrom adapter!  :p

Hmmm. Big difference is size between 22" and 27", too. I'm sure that adds to the inconvenience... :)
