Re: SOLUTION... My on camera flash photos look just fine

The shot below, selected for use in Brides, was shot with two Einstein 640s up front / overhead and a single Profoto D1 in the far backround to light the courtyard / trees. Shutter speed is 1/30 at f/8 hand held rear curtain and this is unretouched. We used a Canon 1DsMkIII with Zeiss 35 f/1.4 and a Pocket Wizard TT1 to trigger the strobes (in manual mode).

I did not take your comment the wrong...not after seeing what you posted and after stating your settings for that shot. The lighting looks flat and that photo could have been taken with a rebel and kit lens. Good luck in the future

Indeed, I'm not really seeing the technical or artistic proficiency in this particular example photo, which demonstrates results that could have been accomplished with an adequate smartphone. Perhaps you have something that better illustrates your point, sixgun. I really, really hope so, otherwise this thread is merely an academic exercise.
