You have wildlife models and i have human models.They both move fast and can be tricky to capture.You have captured this beautifully andi wish that i could do the same with wildlife lol Smile

Thanks Bridget. I think i'm going to save up and treat myself to some lighting and backgrounds and have ago.

I think thats an excellant idea.I have the basic two head set with one umbrella and a soft box.With a lastolite collapsable background.If you could see me trying to fit the background back into a small bag after is so funny.There is a certain way to fold the ackgroud and can i do it,not very often lol Smile.I am saving up for paper backrounds on a roll and some stands for it.I think for me it would be better.Then a new car to fit it all in when i go on locations for weddings and sittings. lol Smile

do you have a light meter or can you do it without.
#6 Mon February 23, 2009 9:43pm

No i don't have a light meter i'ts more a case of trial and error.I usually have a play before the clients arrive to get the right light.I do use a metz 76 flashgun which sets the flash units off but i must get a wireless trigger for the units Smile
