Thanks! I was using a regular Calumet 12' light stand with a reflector holder attachment (http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …24747&Q=&is=REG​&A=details (external link)). The reflector is a 2 sided White/Gold&White Calumet Medium reflector, student discounts at calumet help quite a bit on stuff like light stands and reflectors!

Luke, what kind of stand are you using to hold the white reflector and what kind of reflector is that? What a great simple setup, glad you posted it!

I love this thread!

I got a very similar complete reflector kit (42" 5-1 reflector, a mounting arm and a (cheap) 8' lightstand) from B&H:

Mike, So jealous you got to try those out, just watched the Fstoppers video on the III's, I've been using my Yongnuo RF602's for my flashes, when I upgrade I will most likely move to the III's! what did you think of them?

So far I love them. They're going to make a great addition to my kit - they integrate seamlessly with my Minis and Flexes and are going to be a huge help with my remote camera work. The fstoppers article sums up my feelings pretty well. This is going to shake up the flash trigger market in a huge way.

Mike, for sure man, I really like that it can receive and then send a signal with minimal delay, When i tried to trigger both my camera and a single strobe while trying to light paint a car with my RF602's it triggered them both at the same time, causing the shutter to jsut start opening when the flash went off, aka no flash in the image, in which case i'd need a separate trigger to put on a different channel to trigger the strobe too, would be a pain in the ass haha

mustang0672: Nice 'tang', but this should really be in "Transportation". This thread is for 'how you did it' shots. Thanks.

I think it is fit for this thread. I did say "how I did it" I said used my canon eos rebel t3 with nothing special . Just because I didn't use anything fancy doesn't mean it shouldn't belong here. I added a picture of my camera that I used to take them.

In this case, there is no real ''setup''. We all have a camera here. This thread is made to show everyone how you did a special picture, show a behind the scene view, inspire with interesting ideas. It's made to help everyone know how to achieve a specific end result by showing how it was made.

Showing a picture of a mustang and the camera that shot the picture is worth nothing more than showing the brushes that was used to for a painting. We want to see how it was done, be it a picture of you laying on the ground with your camera in hand or a complex lighting setup.

Hope my comment won't sound rude to you.
