5DMKII + using 580EXII as master on location lingerie shoot (Warning)

Did an on location lingerie shoot a couple weeks ago for my portfolio and the model's using 5DMKII, 35L and 50L. Instead of my Alien Bees studio gear I decided to use my 580EXII as master and using two or three 580EXII/EX as slave units. Key light with Photoflex Q39 diffuser, fill with Whale Tail studio version and other unit alternatively with Lumiquest snoot or bare to either light background or use as hairlight.

I did not have any issues using the 580EXII and EX units with the 5DMKII. The only thing is when it is dark and model wearing a black outfit it will fool the camera meter and will overexpose. I was prepared for this as it happened to me during a winter shoot as well so I adjusted accordingly.

The Alien Bees setup (with octabox) would give a more attractive 'wrap around' lighting but I really like this portable lighting gear and will be my traveling companion for out of town shoots.
