      Great white background setup idea. Do you think that SB26 has contributed to the white background appearing so bright, or was it all done by the 580EX?

      @vladxp - The SB26 was quite far away and was only added after I got the background to go white with the 580EX.

      So, technically, the SB26 may be adding a weeee bit of fill, but really not very much, given that it is set to expose the model properly who is 4-5 feet closer to the flash than the wall was.
