Re: First attempt at off camera flash

I did not read all the replies to your original thread, but I also like to play with my SB 800 off camera--and also an Alien Bee B800 monolight with a small Photoflex softbox. Here are some results--I always bounce off a wall or the ceiling, unless I'm using the softbox--then I can practically put it in someone's face.

This is a shot of my husband doing Tai Chi. SB800 without any diffusion was 4 or 5 feet left of me, light shooting directly at him, SB800 mounted on a gorilla pod.

Portrait of my husband--I had just got the B800 and had it mounted on a light stand to his right, slightly higher than him, as you can see by the fall of shadow on the left.

Another one of my husband--light mounted to his left.
