does it still look oof? i was shooting with two strobes outdoors, it was hard to get a good focus, i would turn the model lamp on my key light on, go to where i wanted to shoot from, get a good focus, mark my spot with some snow, go turn the lamp off, and then shoot. oh the joys of shooting in low light

good call

i use some of the cheapest lights i have seen, a pair of interfits i picked up for around 400 if i remember, i have been really impressed with them, although i wish i had waited and invested in something portable. im going to pick up an alienbees battery box here soon, i cant wait for the freedom

Nice shots, both are really good, the buildings on the right hand side in the second one are distracting to me in some ways. In others it adds to the ambience of pictures. Keep up the good work.
