    Default Guitar I

    Hey all!

    I got an extra receiver in last week as well as a hotshoe adapter to use with my Nikon SB-600, so now I can use that and my Vivitar 285HV together wirelessly. Decided to test out the 'ebay triggers' and this was my result!

    Guitar I

    Nikon D50, 50mm f/1.8 @ f/8, 1/100s, ISO 200
    285HV camera left, 1/4 power, bounced off ceiling.
    SB-600 behind guitar, 1/64 power, faced at the back of the guitar at an angle

    Any ideas on how I could avoid getting the shadow above the guitar?

    Aim a flash and umbrella at the guitar instead of boucing it off the celing, should fill in the shadow

    Ok, thanks! Do you mean to use the umbrella to bounce, or to shoot through the umbrella? I don't have any umbrellas yet, but I plan to get some at some point. What size would you recommended to get some nice, soft light, and or to help fill in shadows like in this case?

    I have two umbrellas, ones a 46 and the others a 48


    either works, they make umbrellas that are convertable now, thats what i have. Just peel the black back off and its a shoot through, its more personal preferance.

    Very Nice, I like the back lighting, perhaps a little too bright, but you are on to something here.
    Thanks for sharing this

    Alrighty, thanks! The convertable ones sure do sound handy, so I'll have to grab a couple of those.

    Thanks! Yeah, I had my SB600 as low as it could go light-wise, haha. =)
