Hey, Sylvester, I really like the lighting on these, and it doesn't look like your typical side lighting that's often used for this type of shot. I'm doing a fitness shoot next week as part of another shoot, and this lighting would work well. It looks like you're using a strip light for side lighting on camera left and possibly a gridded beauty dish or softbox either boomed above the camera or slightly camera right (but high and pointed down). Am I in the ballpark?

Yes and no...lol
they are ALL strip boxes
one to cam left in the rear, one up above my head angled down about 65 degrees and one on my shorts down low on the right side.

I use strips with grids because the fall off is faster.

I didn't want to do the typical three light setup...so I did a slightly different one.

hi everybody, my question:

is the following setup possible: canon 7d, master 550ex flash, slave 420ex flash. i'd like to create a 2 light setup without having to use the pop-up flash. so i'd use a cheap radio trigger between the camera and the 550ex, and then trigger the 420ex by using the light from the master flash. everything in manual because these cheap radio triggers dont deal with ettl and stuff (thats OK, i'd prefer manual) ... so, would it work? can the 550ex trigger the 420ex? can i control the power output of the 420ex from the 550ex? will the 420ex go to sleep after 90 secs?

i actually have the 420ex (my first off camera flash btw, wish me good luck but i'd like to know if i want to step up, then will i need to replace the 420 with something else or i could still use it in a setup like i described above.

different: i found this as a possible alternative for the 550ex : Bolt VS-510C

but i cant figure out whether it could act as a master or not??

thanks for the answers

Why not just get a second receiver for the trigger? Keep in mind the 420ex doesnt really do manual as it has no power controls so it would only fire full power.

yes, i know it doesn't have manual, but i can control the power of it by flash-expo-compensation when its on-camera.
i just wonder can i do similar power control through a master flash? of course if i trigger the 420 on full power via a 2nd receiver, that's not really useful most of the times. if i cant, then yes, i wont bother and will get 2 flashes with manual function and trigger them with multiple receivers, but i might get to keep the 420. thats what im curious about ... ?

Well, he was almost ready for bed. It could also have been that he wasn't wearing any pants....


Thanks for the compliment!

This is a wonderful shot.
Only nitpick would be that if you had buttoned up your shirt the bluish undershirt would not be a distraction. One less color for the eyes to deal with.
Still a lovely photo.

Just my opinion.
