at last - soft light | 254 - 366
I've been reading strobist.com trying to teach myself some off camera lighting techniques. I became immediately apparent that it was time I invested in some kind of light modifier. So as a lastolite softbox was out of the question due to the birthday present I had to buy Lisa, I opted for a shot through umbrella, a stand and bracket off of ebay. They arrived today just after I had been reading on strobist about specular highlights using one light... So this is my attempt at said technique.
SB-700 camera left @24mm 1/8th power through 40" shot through brolly. Upturned dinning room table for the backdrop... I was after a reflective kind of surface and it was the best thing I could find.
