Did some quick shots for a company newsletter today and it was my first real opportunity to play with an off camera lighting setup that involved more than a single flash. The female subject below was actually just assisting me with the setup and we fired off 3-4 quick test shots for gauge the lighting. The shot turned out so good that I decided to keep it and in fact I like it a little better than the ones with the intended subject. The intended subject works in computer security hence the vault door as the backdrop.
Dropped my old (free) Pentax AF200T behind the subjects and positioned my trusty Canon 430EX in front to the lower right. Purposely left it bare (no diffuser, bounce, etc) for a harsh dramatic effect. Sure the lighting could have been positioned better in a few respects, but it was mostly an experiment and I think it turned out pretty good considering I took less than 5 minutes to set it up.
Please excuse the adjustments they were done on my Macbook screen quickly. If I have time later I will rework them a little once I’m back at home on my HP2475w.
