    Class assignment

    Was working with the students today on using one light with a reflector for when we had an interview shoot for video and limited resources available. I used the D70 and the laptop to shoot a series of shots on three different skin toned people and what color side of the 42inch five in reflector. These were shot by Youngshooter under guidance for the class demonstration. The main light was an SB800 on a stand with a white umbrella to camera right, about 2-3 feet above the subjects head and on a 40 degree angle to the subject. ISO 200, f/5.6 aperture priority with the camera in commander/TTL mode. (That is Nikon speak for no cables between the camera and flash, using the on-camera strobe to fire the main SB800. The electronics are such that the OCF does not effect the exposure)

    Test1 is black reflector to camera left in tight to subtract light. Test2 was silver sided in the same position, Test3 had the white side and we finished up with the gold on test4. Out model is a deep olive skinned latin.
