.I had a chance to take a few shots of Booey Hottenstein the other night and a few people asked me about the lighting set-up for the composites that I made. This was the first time that I used 3 umbrella's. The lighting was consistent and predictable. Once I had the settings dialed in I just slid the lights back and forth to control the power. Pretty straight forward since I knew I was removing him from the picture and didn't need to worry about lighting a background.
The camera was set to manual. Somewere around f/13, 1/160th @ ISO 100. The settings were also the same on all the lights. Roughly 1/4 power throughout. There was no specific reason that I choose to use a speedlight rather than another mono other than it was closest to me when I was setting up. Below are the SOOC shots that I took in my garage and the final composite from a road that was used in the Lake Carey Road Race.
