Putting it all together

As we’ve been attempting portrait photography on my course I thought I should have a go with some of the bits and bobs I’ve been collecting. For the pictures below the basic setup was a single Nikon SB-900 flash triggered with some cactus remote triggers  (which are very good… except sometimes it looks like the sync speed is completely out, as I get banding) positioned front, right and above and a grey background I recently bought.

The top two photos use an umbrella as a diffuser, and the bottom two are with a bare flash.  For each set,the picture on the right has a reflector positioned bottom left.

I reckon, based on this set of pictures, the flash without the umbrella, and the the reflector are the way to go.

They we go.  Practise run over….
