The next 3 would be the funniest sequence I have ever photographed! We were playing an impromptu posing game for each shot I took – none of the poses were planned!  This is what they came up with hahaha!

The 2 brothers thinking exactly the same, much to the dissapointment of their dad! LOL! :)

Since everyone was so impressed with the umbrella light setup, here are some behind the scene shots:) This is the wall we used as the background with just ambient light coming in through the blinds.

Lighting setup: 580EX II and 430EX triggered via Pocket Wizards, shot through umbrella, Sekonic L-508 Lightmeter

I used the Pocket Wizard to trigger the 580EX II and had it set to Master with the 430EX set to slave. This way I only needed a pair of PW’s to trigger the 2 flashes simultaneously although using this method, the sync speed is cut to 1/125 instead of the max 1/200.

Hope you guys enjoyed the pics and the mini behind the scene segment! If you’ve got any questions about off camera lighting, feel free to contact me! :)

    Lovely shoot. Thanks for the behind-the-scenes segment. I find it SO helpful when established photographers are willing to share their tips of the trade. Thanks!

    Hi Hannah, I’m always happy to help and I love doing these behind the scene segments. I for one love looking at how other photographers work too so I thought why not do one myself :)

    Feel free to email me if you’d like to know more!

    Hi

    just wondering
    what is your setup there you have there?

    and also does it matter in brands and sizes if doing something like you

    Hi Andy, I used a 580EX II and a 430EX. The stand and umbrella setup shouldn’t matter as long as it’s sturdy enough to hold up your equipment. Brand doesn’t really matter here but the umbrella size could make a difference depending on your subject :)
