    Small Flash Portraiture

    After the post about the Strobist blog (which I've been a member/follower of since nearly the beginning) I thought I would post some shots I did for one of the local HS basketball teams last Saturday. These were done with small hotshoe flashes, 2 Sunpak 383s on lightstands shot through white umbrellas at 1/2 power on camera right and left with a Quantaray 370 behind the subjects bare with a 3/4 CTO gel for a backlight. All were fired with 16 channel ebay wireless triggers.

    Nice job on the images. I saw those on strobist just recently I believe. I recently did the same for our local basketball media day. I just went for one SB800 bounced into a 45 inch photogenic eclipse umbrella. I love being able to travel light. Beats dragging out the Bees all the time.

    For me, since I also have a 'day' job, the small flashes just fit the way I work. The majority of what I do is on location and it's nice to grab a couple of small bags and go.

    I think you did an awesome job on lighting but wish you hadn't cropped so close to the sides.

    I've got to get my flash fixed and rejoin strobist!
