I've seen these types of threads on other websites ... they are extremely helpful. I thought I kick one off here:

' . substr('//farm3.static.flickr.com/2597/4123760298_469b870cde.jpg', strrpos('//farm3.static.flickr.com/2597/4123760298_469b870cde.jpg', '/') + 1) . '


And the setup:

Nice thread, I'm working both jobs today, but hope to toss some of my setups up this weekend with some samples. I've bookmarked the site to the lighting diagram so I can make them.

In photoshop, just make sure you're clicked on the proper layer ... use the move tool ... slide it around ... also the transform tool spins things around

Funny how I uploaded these yesterday with the intent of making new thread but never got to the thread part L()L I crafted the icons on these myself so don't laugh to hard.

Did you use 1/400 shutter in order to stop the action, or just because your lights are so bright? Have you tried 1/200 (most cameras top sync speed, roughly) and had trouble with a touch a motion blur, or am I just reading into it too much?

Thanks for contributing :)

The two reasons I bought the tt1& tt5 PW was to be able go higher then the max 200 sync capped by the 5D and be able to shoot wide open and blur the background. I find with kids 4 or 5 and under have a hard time staying still, so the faster shutter speed helps. I do have a light meter and have shot at 1/200 sync, in fact if I lowered the iso to 100 I'd be at 1/200. The PW's just gives me control.

how fast can you get the shutter before the light power takes a hit?

I really like this thread and thank you for the lighting diagram, it is very cool.

Here i would like to share my experience with outdoor portrait lighting and setup, which is very simple and sometimes very challenging, but in the end is very rewarding result.

The PW's are rated to go up to 1/8000 high sync. On the white background I'm not trying to blur the back ground. I could If I shot at approx. 1/3000 f2.8. but prob. wouldn't see it. As far as the strobes themselves, never maxed them out to full power in the studio.
