I searched and I don't think we have a "one light" thread here. Since this is the lighting forum, it might be appropriate to show what can be done with one strobe, or one light source (sunlight included). :cool:

I'll go ahead and start it off and hope others will join. :D
Please explain your light.

I really love that last shot. I'll add to this thread once I buy the alien bee triggers.

By any chance did you watch or go to a One Light Workshop?

No. I've taken a few small lighting seminars, but nothing specific to one light. There's no substitute for just getting out and trying stuff. :cool:

I hope other people post up.

On the last one I had a backlight set up; however, now I notice that it didn't fire, so this is one light.;)
