Fly me to the moon, and back.

Canon 50D + Sigma 10-20mm @ ~19min, f/5.6, 10mm, ISO100

 

So the other night, Kane, Matt, Mel and myself, all went out bush to shoot this plane, which is owned by Mel's Father. After an hour or so stuffing around setting up the lights and amidst cries from the others to just "leave it how it is" and "don't worry about the flashes!" I was well rewarded by sticking to my plans and producing this.

 

Strobist:

3 flashes used -

1. Canon 580exII - 1/2pwr, sitting on ground immediately at camera left, pointing up to light the underside of the wing. Triggered via cheap eBay triggers.

2. Canon 430exII - 1/1pwr, On light stand at 90deg left of camera, pointing to light the rear of the plane, Triggered via wireless link with 580exII.

3. Canon 430ex - 1/1pwr, on light stand at ~45deg right of camera, pointing to light the other wing, Triggered via cheap eBay triggers.
