For Andre

Thanks for the kind words. I was at the same location a week ago using just a 580EXII on my hotshoe with the Gary Fong. Adding a second light really makes a difference. You are right you don't need a huge diffuser and strobe lights to get nice lighting.

Best regards,

Absolutely great stuff! I was going to say the same thing, the first and fifth one are my favorites. The lighting and exposure are perfect. Combined with the creamy bokeh of those L's just makes a stunning combination.

You can see that the Gary Fong diffuser is still way too small for this application, and yet you managed to get very nice lighting on most of them. I think the key is that you placed the light and posed the subject so that the shadow lines spill nicely off the subject and not on critical areas. Good Job! Just goes to show if you know what you are doing you don't always need an 8 foot octagon to get nice light.
