Another cool Strobist idea...

But then again, does Strobist have ideas that aren't cool?

This was a pretty simple setup, three SB800's all set @ 1/128 power. Two were on light stands at ear level and about arms length from the subject. The third flash resting on the table with hands cupped around the head.

Image Name: "Daughter annoyed because she has to model again"
Image Location: Dining room table
Equipment Used: Nikon D300, 60mm lens, shot at 1/160 sec, f/7.1, iso 200
Post Production: None

All three SB800's were fired using PocketWizards.

When I do this again I will use another flash facing the backdrop with a red or blue gel to give the image more depth and separation from the background. I think using the colored gel would also make the image a bit more interesting.

Here is a link to the original Strobist post.
