Off camera lighting, post your shots!

This thread obviously has to do with OCF (off camera flash), wether it be speed lights or studio lights. So long as the flashes used are "off camera".

This thread is for learning purposes and all shots posted should have...

1. EXIF
2. What lights were used and how many
3. Wireless triggers used
4. Explanation of the set-up

As most of us know the Corner is dedicated to help you learn about photography and all aspects of photography. I think having this thread and showing how to accomplish the final image would be nice to have.

Re: Off camera lighting, post your shots!

I'll start it off...




I don't remember the flash powers.

EXIF: 1/160sec, f/5.6, ISO 100, 75mm
Lights: 580EX and 430EX
Triggers: ISHOOT PT-04's (eBay)
Set-Up: See image; I didn't want it to look like Sherrisse was standing in a black hole so I used the 430EX inside the building to light it up.

Re: Off camera lighting, post your shots!

Scott what a great thread!!!

Here's mine:

f/10
speed 1/200
iso 100
45mm

I wanted a soft even lighting over my subject but window light was a little on the weak side so I set my studio light at a 45 degree angle and used the window as a reflector. I got down and set a creative angle between me and my subject and took the shot (the set-up picture shows the light on the right but for this particular shot I moved the light to the left). Softbox lighting flashed by remote slave attached to light and my camera. I decided to bring the softbox close in to my subject since I knew it will create a soft even lighting, if I had brought the box further away the lighting would have created harsh shadows (taken from experience).

For illustration I did not include any post-production so you can see what was captured straight out of camera. No cropping was done in darkroom either, this is shot and shown as is. I think it is important to show the before and after but my after looks pretty much the same as sooc.

Re: Off camera lighting, post your shots!

I ask this question as to learn. These are very nice shots. Have any of them been edited/photoshoped in any way?
Thanks

I process all the images I post. Mostly just levels, contrast, saturation and some sharpening.
