A few of us from the SE thread met up for a strobist style meet, setting up in Borough Market, and by the river. Share your images here...

To kick off, here's one of Yolande (straight from camera);

It was very appreciated mate, those softboxes are great and lightweight, but damn expensive to be bouncing off the floor! (again)

That one is so bent already but still does the job!

I've chosen 13 shots from the evening (....I know I'm supposed to be job hunting!)

This is more of an out take while I was setting up for the group shot, I loved the expressions, and your leg hanging out of frame holding the light stand:

Some nice shots so far guys. Sorry I had to drop out at such short notice, but I really didn't feel up to it and would only have ended up giving you all my germs anyway. :o


No sense and unfortunately not enough money.

Her4e's the final grtoup shot,
we put a single SB-26 on the floor with a full blue gell, so it bounced of the floor, this helped to lighten the foreground.

I think i prefer that last one, looks allot more natural. Excellent shots througout though Rich!

Trying to find one of those westcotts 28" SB, but there are none on Ebay. Im not prepared to pay almost £150 for one!
