First shoot with new Alien Bees, C&C appreciated
Jun 3, 2010

I've been using speedlights for a while now but I finally was able to save up enough to buy a couple of studio lights. I bought 2 of the Alien Bees B800 and the giant softbox, along with the 20 degree gridspot and the 22" white beauty dish. I have yet to use the beauty dish but I did get to try out the lights with the softbox and grid. For these photos the key was with the giant softbox camera-right and the 20 degree grid was on the other behind the subject camera left for hair/rim light. For the photos with the lighter background I used two Vivitar 285hv to try and blow out the white vinyl background. Comments and criticism are appreciated.
