@jerome ... absolutely awesome shot

Shoot through umbrella/ 430EX II set to ETTL II with bare 430EX II camera left and behind subject for hair light. Subject also had a reflector in her lap to subtly lift the shadows. Used an ST-E2 transmitter on-camera and shot tethered to a laptop using EOS Utility software.

Very nice image. Great lighting, pose and PP.

430EXII camera right shoot through umbrella. Silver reflector camera left. Bare 430EXII lighting back wall. ST-E2 on-camera transmitter. Tethered to a laptop using EOS Utility software to capture directly to my hard drive. It's really great to have a full screen preview of the shot for focussing and then be able to show the model/client a full-sized version of the shot immediately. Beats a tiny LCD screen.

Awesome photo! Can you tell me how you connected to your laptop as I have wanted to do that to. I think it would be great to preview right away before moving on to another pose or different setup. Thanks.

I did a couple of "school pics" for some homeschooler friends yesterday.

430ex and my little 16" Alzo Softbox

They turned out great. How do you like the Alzo...I was watching the demo on utube and wondered if they were as good as they seemed. Which one do you have?

Not to try and answer for him, but our Canon utility disk has a program that allows you to do this. Works really nice if you have an available lap top.

Hi Chatty,
Here's the one that I have. It's an older style that doesn't open like an umbrella. http://www.alzodigital​.com …_porta_flash_so​ft_box.htm (external link)

That being said, I like it just fine. Takes about a minute to unfold and put the diffuser in place. Takes about a half a minute to fold it back up. Very easy. I would like to get something a little bigger eventually, but for now this one does the job in most cases.

I haven't used it in a long time as I mostly do sports so no time to preview anything. It's not hard though. I think you can even use the computer for a remote release.

Great shots and very clean processing on these.

This thread is too inspirational to not participate. I purchased a photoflex xs softbox and multiclamp. Used my 580ex and cybersyncs which I already had. Thanks to all of the ocf light masters that post thier shots and offer instruction. I am sure with a lot of practice and info from this thread I will be able to get some nice ocf shots.
Here are my first practice shots from this evening. My niece reluctantly agreed to pose last minute. Any feedback and instruction on lighting is greatly appreciated.
