Strobist Techniques


Strobist Techniques:  Part 2, [ Click here to read Part1 ]

The light is the key element in the photography, you may use the day-light, or the camera built-in flash but to play with lights and shadows you will need one or more external lights with remote fire capability. (I have the Nikon SB-900)

In this article (Part 2) i will use the same LightBox with black background and Glass as a reflection of the object, again SB-900 Nikon SpeedLight will be used in remote sync with my Nikon D90, also i will use a flashlight as another light source.


This is the LightBox with black background, and sb900 position.


The position of the of the FlashLight.


The result after Crop, you can see the reflection on the Glass.


The SB-900 placed inside the LightBox with 50% light power, [no flashlight]


Same after crop the SB-900.


 The result, after croped.


other photos for different objects will be post.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your thoughts? I mean, what you say is important and everything. But its got no punch, no pop! Maybe if you added a pic or two, a video? You could have such a more powerful blog if you let people SEE what youre talking about instead of just reading it.
