if you mean triggering, There is a small Yongnuo RF602 reciever connected to the bottom of the strobe which is a Yongnuo YN560, a speedlight that runs of regular AA batteries

not a problem! If you are in the market for some good triggers as long as you dont need high-speed-sync I have been very happy with my RF602's, I know theres a new version out but I have no experience yet with those.

First post in this thread! My friend develops his own apparel/accessories, and he has a new product called the "Board Beard" for skiers and snowboarders. He had his friend come over to do a product shoot at our house, so I decided to jump in. I neglected to get a REAL setup shot, so I figured the goggle reflection could give an idea :o.

"Setup" with fluorescent lighting behind subject, no flash (the one pictured isn't mine, gotta get one!).

I'm a fan of the last one. My friends friend and I were hidden in the closet on both sides of the open doors. You can see the flash going off (top right corner) on one side of the door where the other guy was. I was on the other side and had set my 40D frame rate to high to try to catch this guys flash going off. I was actually able to at one point and it completely washed out everything, however when I recovered it a bit (thanks to RAW!) I just had a floating head...

Well, I thought tagakweens was making another "hot model joke" by suggesting he was so focussed on the beautiful lady that he missed the setup photo.

Are you suggesting that he has no right to offer an opinion? :rolleyes:

Haha, just a harmless observation. Don't really have anything yet to contribute but I'll try for something.

I wouldn't be concerned. I would suspect people would want to view this thread, probably because it's a setup thread, so they could learn some new stuff. And of course with viewing a thread there's always the chance of wanting to comment, without actually contributing to the actual theme of the thread. I see no harm in it at all.


Here's a recent thing I've been playing with; paint drops in water. Started the other day but didn't think to shoot the setup, so I threw it together again and shot the setup. Originally I just had a single flash inside the box, but today I tried it with two flash shoot through the sides, hoping to get rid of flash reflections in the glass. I also used a square vase the other day for some of the shots...


Setup...50D/Sig 18-200mm OS on tripod, 550EX/wireless trigger from left, DC Pro ETTL/wireless trigger from right...


IMAGE: http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a399/katodog/DSCF9387.jpg



Results...these first few were with the 550EX inside the box with a Sto-Fen, which worked great but I'd get the flash reflected in the glass...

One from today's setup...didn't bother to clean the glass or remove the bubbles, but you get the idea...

Not at all. I'm simply stating that I take my time on photoshoots to take a BTS shot specificly for this thread. I am aware the posing isn't the same, I won't interrupt the session to do the bts because some people want the same pose on both shots...

Therefor, they are done at the end of the session. Same pose or not, it's still the same exact setup.

Sorry for my un-cooperative share ;)

The paint I use is Faber Castle "Creative For Kids Window Paint", which is the same as this...


Window Paint (external link)


I water it down to the right consistency otherwise it's too thick. It's the same stuff I use for my sound-activated paint shots. The glass is filled with water. I simply stand there and drop the paint into the glass and snap the shutter at the same time.


I'm sure food coloring would work just the same
