    oh tough to remember. but think the shutter was at the fastest for sync
    speed (1/250th) so that any of the disgusting location lights didnt effect
    the image. and aperture was then changed to get the most amount of light
    out of the flashes.

    Dom my man! can this be done with one sb-900 in back, an one Continous
    light in front…………….

  9. Snowvdo says:

    Can I accomplish this effect by using only a flash mounted on top of my cam
    and a 250 watt video light shooting at the background?

    Hi Dom. Great tutorial. I have been following you for months. I noticed a
    light on the model prior to you firing your flash. Was that the auto
    focus/flash metering light or was that some sort of modeling lamp feature?
    I know by holding the aperture preview button you can get the flash to
    strobe but this was something different. Thanks again for all your
    help/tutorials. Much appreciated.

    Uhm, what is with the background?

  12. ManicEightBall says:

    This is a great lesson.

    are you on spot? matrix?

  14. Algirdas Slunksnis says:

    ok background overexposed and RGB 255 so if you print them photos it will
    look bad.

    @Law2708 thanks

  16. phunkyboy says:

    Fantastic tip!

  18. Dombowerphoto says:

    your built in flash will not have enough power. also a built in flash
    should mostly just be used as a trigger for off camera flashes (check nikon
    cls videos) also your buildt in flash cant go behind the subject and light
    the background and not the foreground.

  19. V2SkiLLz0R says:

    That’s a pretty awesome tips!

  20. alexK661 says:

    @Dombowerphoto you really need to use punctuation. so there are 3 flashes?

  21. christian2182 says:

    Excellent! what was your camera settings???

  22. kasperlaerkesen says:

    Dom, this is pretty good for, as you said, shooting high key anywhere. I
    find however, that blowing out the background completely to mimick a studio
    shoot brings its own issues to the table. If i can’t get enough distance to
    the background, the power from the back lights bleed onto the subject. as
    is evident especially in Verity’s hair. Any ideas how to fix this?

    i have vivitar 285s, but they dont seem to sync over 200, can i get this
    too? this is awesome, what is the power of the flash power in the umbrella,
    both the same?

  24. mitchellsk says:

    wow… thanks

    those.
