I was so excited, my arms were shaking, my heart was beating fast......
I unpacked them and i just place them in the Living Room!!..for more than an hour..or a day..
For two days, i had the lightstand with the umbrellas and the brackets attached, sitting in my living room..without having any specific reason...(it's a kind of freak, isn't it?)...until..
The phone rung..It was my best buddie Chris (he is an excellent cabinet-maker by the way).
I had ordered him a wooden frame for use as a backdrop holder..and it was ready..
So, this is it...Chris was my first victim....Hey...i had to test my stuff somehow..!
I tortured him for about an hour and a half..this is the final result..
The setup is pretty simple..Canon Speedlight 580EX with white umbrella left and above Chris.Canon Speedlight 550EX behind him.Black fabric for backround.
A canon 5D whas used and the strobes were triggered with canon's ST-E2 transmitter.
Post Process? I removed the blemishes and i smoothed the skin.And i fixed the white ballance to.
This is a light diagram from the shot..
(Thank's to KEVIN KERTZ for his beautiful light diagram.Check him out here)
P.S-The result of the blue hue in the backround, is because of some light spill into the black fabric and a light blue cap in the 550EX)
