Spent a pleasant couple of hours on Sunday night playing around with off camera flash along with some friends from Navan Camera Club – thanks for organising Hugh! It’s not something I get to do very often but it is very enjoyable.
I have two flashes, a 550ex and a 430exII, both fitted with mini soft boxes and these were perched up on two very expensive light stands (tenner on flea bay). Both flashes were set to manual – the 550 at ¼ power and the 430 at 1/8 power and both were triggered by an STE2 IR Trigger on top of the camera. And that was it for the night. No more messing around apart from playing with the exposure on the camera to control the ambient light.
Of course we have to say a big thanks to our two lovely models for the night, Emer & Nick. Didn’t they do well?
