2:46, beautiful shot. Really beautiful. I’m in love……again.
Speed lights have tons of functionality that studio lighting doesn’t. In most cases they’re a fantastic solution, overcoming the brightness of the sun isn’t really one of them. You could easily do the same thing with a 300 dollar studio strobe. I think this video was just to show that you could do it with speedlights if you had 3 of them.
looked like he was using yet another on camera flash pointing away from the model to trigger the other three
I have to agree with you there, the big name flashes are overpriced but the two Yongnuo flashes he mentioned in the video are actually quite reasonably priced, I got mine for $90 on amazon though it was a slightly less powerful model
lol are you kidding me..
did you use remotes to get the three flashes to flash at the same time?
F8 ?!?!? Hardly !
3 flashes of equal full power would give you barely more than one stop of extra light. You halved distance – you got yourself one more stop.
at f8 iso 200 you shooting at typical synch speed of 1/200 or 1/250 in bright daylight sun you already 2 stops overexposing your background. Hardly possible to turn any day in night shooting like that. So this is insanely misleading video (ok with iso 100 you are on “sunny 16″ at 1/100, so one stop).
you can pick up used nikon flashes for under 100 from adorama or bh… I have 5 sb28dx and never spent more than 95 for any of them… add a slave to them and your gold…
When you show the photos taken, are they edited or is it straight off the camera
How would the picture look if you used a silver reflector instead? Would it be too little light still?
Quick question. Were you using you flash mounted on the camera to trigger the others?
Move your model into the shade, or use a scrim over them
You can pick the Yongnuo YN-560 II up from eBay, for about sixty bucks (US) a pop. I bought two on eBay (AU$69 each), they work a treat!
3x Yongnuo YN-560 Mark III + 1x Yongnuo RF-602/603 = 350$
Heeeh thats Tinaaa
@pluga, it’s a 24-70 2.8
I will admit, I have watched your videos, but never came across this one, This is one of your best yet, So well done. Let me ask, when you need to expose for the ambient light, do you use your exposure compensation button for that ? is that what it means? and instead of a flash, could I use a einstein strobe instead on a umbrella?
What size of lens are you using?
hi, great vide!, i am wondering… what equipment are you using to hold the 3 flashes and the umbrella?
Well, not annoying…I just wish it wasn’t as expensive. Here’s this $500 flash we’re using and it’s not bad…but what if we use THREE!
This idea is really annoying to me. I have always thought about these kinds of flashes as being more afordable, but you have to dump a good deal of cash into something like this with 3 of these flashes. Do that many people really have 3 of these flashes to use? It seems like the expensive thing used to be to have the studio lights, but these seem to have partially replaced them, especially for on-location.
can you tell me the name of that umbrella and the 900 thing please ?
do you have a video about beauty dish and what do you recommend. I haven’t able to find a video where they can show you go to set up a beauty dish with alien bee or other light. thanks!
