And one final...

photo from this session with Megan. I squeezed a lot of light out of the 580EX II here...gotta love HSS. It allowed me to keep the shallow DoF and get the lighting the way I wanted. Shutter speed this high with strobes can only be achived with the Canon or Nikon strobes and that is what makes them so great! (Metz and some others can too but I am refering to studio type strobes that limit you to 1/200 or 1/250 speeds)

 

Strobist: 580EX II at full power with 1/4 CTO gel through Westcott umbrella. Trigger was a 30' OCFGear E-TTL cord

 

Canon 500D + 85mm f/1.8

Exposure 1/2000

Aperture f/2.5

Focal Length 85 mm

ISO Speed 100

 

Could have used a 3 stop ND here as well.
