Great shots! The 2nd pic definitely tells a story, heheh. But IMO the man is a bit too out of focus, just too distracting.

My son, who is leaving for the US Navy in a week from today. We had to get some photos for his thank you cards. Camera is Canon 6D with Sigma 70-200, lights were two speedlites at 1/4 power each (save some battery and faster recycle) in 31" Neewer octabox.

I second this. Even though I'm not American I have an enourmous respect for men in uniform and can't help but feel proud as well. Godspeed to him!

OT... I joined the Marines right out of high school. Grew up in 20 seconds. Got my BS and MBA free of charge. Learned all I needed to learn about real leadership and what it takes.

Oh, Your son can get pretty good prices for cameras if they still have those kinds of deals at the PX. That's where I got my first Nikon.

Please tell your son, Thank You!
As far as the photo goes, how did you mount the 2 speedlights in there? I'd like to incorporate that method. Thanks!

I bought this last year from Amazon (https://www.amazon.com …age_o02_s01?ie=​UTF8&psc=1 (external link)) and have only used it more recently. It is all metal construction, so a bit heavy with three flashes and triggers on it, so you definitely want to sandbag (or two) your light stand. I have used it with no modifier as well in harsh mid-day sun. I have an LED panel light I just bought that I am going to try as a modeling light, so with this mount, I can have that and a flash. And I will pass on everyone's thanks and well wishes to my son.

Went a different direction recently with portrait and lighting in general, trying other approaches. For the 4th of July we went to St Augustine, Florida for a few days to enjoy the beautiful city and the beautiful beach. Instead of lugging around big lenses, needing lots of distance and using a big strobe with big modifiers, I went with a single lens, ultrawide, a single speedlite, a hand-held boom with a reflector and planned to do ultrawide angle environmental shots with off-camera ETTL at synch speed doing the lighting work.

Our daughter was our little model running around (she's 3.5 years old right now) and my wife held the flash where directed just slightly out of view. The point was to enjoy capturing the environment, dramatically light up our daughter in that environment, challenge myself with full depth of field (so had to pay attention to all detail, no blurry backgrounds to hide stuff) and have memories of where we were. Since I was going to use ultrawide angle, I could get very, very close to the subject and location and that also meant the speedlite could be held pretty close too, so even in full sun we were able to light things up as fill or key level. The YN685 did a great job, and the YN622-TX with remote control over +/- EV changes worked excellent. I used a 5.5" reflector as my modifier instead of a beauty dish because of size and because of distance to subject; and it did increase output and limit spread compared to bare flash, so it did what I needed it to do (before going I questioned taking a beauty dish but didn't want to carry it around). Simple, portable, small setup, that can handle deep shadows in bright sun. ETTL was accurate and did what it was told, which was a nice change of pace and really easy on our daughter. She made it easy being such a ham! We had a lot of fun, no down time, she was able to play and enjoy the environment and I didn't stroke out in the process, hah.

Learned a lot.

Setup:

Canon 5Dc + 17-40L (shot almost entirely at 17mm) | TV mode at 1/200s, ISO 100~200, variable aperture
Yongnuo YN622-TX | Adjusted EV for fill or key as needed remotely

Yongnuo YN685
Godox S-bracket (Bowens)
Godox 5.5" reflector | I found this almost increased output by a stop of light, while controlling spread, which I wanted for efficiency, while being small
Flashpoint Speedpod | Inexpensive telescoping hand-held lighting stand
