    Softbox + Yongnuos + Nissin

    Following on from my discussion about buying flashes and etc...and seeing as I finished my unit at uni and actually have some free time...here is my first mess around with said combo:

    cup_test.jpg

    I used dodge in Gimp to whiten the background - it is a pretty, err, dodgy attempt (sorry) but it was really just to see how the light falls from the flashes. I had the Yongnuo's set up at either side, um, 1/8th, and the Nissin behind at 1/32nd or 1/64th or something fairly weak. I'm reasonably happy with how that all works, and even happier at the AF being fixed.

    I am wondering whether it would make any difference to use the diffusers as well as the softbox, or if that is just over doing it...probably worth another few minutes to try out sometime.

    Looks to be well lit to me. I don't do much of that type of lighting so others may offer more useful advice.

    Yeah, it is the first time I have used this set up, and I was surprised how easy it was. That is usually the clue I am doing something wrong, or not thinking about something...🙃

    I am thinking first thing I can do is use​ some foam stands or something ​like that.

    Just keep it simple and don't over think it. It's easy to take several shots using different arrangements to suit different subjects. Keep what works and toss the rest.

    A nice clean shot Q97 ... you've done a nice gob on this.

    Thanks, I'm glad it doesn't seem to be too far off.
