OK. So I have looked around on the forum and found questions close to this but not as simply asked and not this question specificaly. I am wanting to use my 430ex with an umbrella (since you cool cats got my flash off camera by recomending flash zebra!) I know nothing about umbrellas.
I am wanting to be able to start doing some full body portraiture/learning. I have looked at umbrellas at B&H and in the product description they tell you what the particular size is good for. None of them claim to be good for full body until 60". I guess I have two questions:
(1) Can you fairly easily pull off (without a degree in lighting) the correct exposure on a full body shot with anything smaller than a 60"? and
(2) Will my 430ex be able to do the job with a 60".
I guess the keys here are I am unable to get a bigger strobe anytime soon so I will be working with my 430ex, I know I want to use an umbrella because of the extremely low cost, and I know I want to be able to expose for full body.
You all have always been there for me when I have had questions, and I cannot thank you enough.
