Ok so i got me some pocket wizards.. and i have a flash stand. I cant afford to invest a ab battery pack right now so ill have to use my speedlight. Do i use a shoot through umbrella, or reflective, or beauty dish...

How do i get the speedlight attached to the stand?

I an soo in the dark. I cant even make them work yet;)

What do you have with your stand?

Start here strobist.blogspot.com/2006/03/lighting-101.html and read and do the exercises. Seriously.

Shoot through, reflective, their sizes, a beauty dish are all good modifiers and do different jobs.

If you take the time to read through the strobist 101 and 102 workshops (these are free) you will be off and running in no time. Take the time.

shawns methods are probably a bit more applicable. sounds like your missing an umbrella braket, get one online because the ones at first photo last time i checked were 50$!!
