In the Garden Again

No gardening for me, just a good spot to set up the gear for portraits .... Here's three more recent ones, using two flashes, the main one in a softbox off to the right, and a rim light behind.

Using the Cactus V6II trigger and RF60/x flashes, manual power mode...

Pentax K7 - D FA28-105 - ISO140 - F 8.0 - 1/180th
















Thanks for taking a look, and for all garden related feedback and chat

Can you show a picture of the setup or a sketch?

I didn't take any "pull back" photos unfortunately, so you'll have to bear with my very bad drawing (you'll see why I was forced into photography instead of the fine arts!) ......

The "hair light" flash has a Gary Fong Powersnoot attached, which narrows the beam.

The circle is the subject right ? Lol.

Any thought on the distances?

Yes, that's my daughter, the round thing
It's all very close in, the softbox about 3ft from the faces, and the hair light about 4ft behind. I had to zoom right in to exclude the softbox, making tight framing.

LOL - Thank you for the clarification and the humor.

For this lighting problem, we will assume our subject is a uniform sphere of radius 1...



Nice work!

Ah, now maths was a weak area for me as well ..... what with that and no drawing skills I probably should not have taken up using flash! Thanks Uncle and Brian for your interest ..... I do hope that others will take this as encouragement to try some two-light set-ups with family out in their gardens
