Portrait session with Kerby

Kerbs, originally uploaded by calanan.

At home
Salt Lake City, UT

Nikkor 50mm f/1.8
Nikon SB-800, white brolly above (fired via Nikon CLS)

I've been sick the last two two days, energy levels a bit low so I decided to work on my off-camera lighting skills with our dog, Kerby as a willing (or not - see yesterday's post) subject.

Here's another take:


Nikkor 85mm f/1.8

In both cases my Nikon SB-800 speedlight was mounted on a stand, firing through a white umbrella set to TTL mode. The Nikon D200's popup flash communicated flash intensity to the speedlight using Nikon's Creative Lighting system (CLS).

I try to do portrait sessions with my cats, but they're never that cooperative. Well done.

Thanks, G. If you do ever get them to sit please send me a link to the photo(s). Are you regularly using studio lights/speedlights now?
