Jota Soares says:

THanks man! Nice humble studio tooo, awesome photos! 😀

LearnMyShot says:

you can use sb900 strobe it will do fine. Background lite is to light background , if you don;t want the background bright use only one light

adhamyaadham says:

Hi…….pls have two questions:

1-If I replaced the light strobe with SB-900, can it give the same picture result you got?

2-Why ur putting speedlight behind the white background? If I to remove it, and work with one light source, will it give the same picture result you got?

Thank you.

zasvedogovore says:

Looks little distorted due to wide angle+close distance. For a second set up, there must have been significant color cast from green wall.

LearnMyShot says:

in this case i had a sheer and white backdrop so the BG light was shooting at background positioned between the layers.

adhamyaadham says:

Is the speedlight placed behind the curtians?

LearnMyShot says:

look at alienbeesDOTcom and look at tech info on these light

adhamyaadham says:

ok…..I know I’m asking a lot 🙂 I’m amazed that equipment used don’t look that “sophisticated”, yet the art in taking the pics in ur video resulting outstanding pics!
so, a studio strob as a device, you can attach on it a speedlight?

LearnMyShot says:

all studio strobes have two tubes one for modeling light which is continuous and one for flash.

adhamyaadham says:

mmm, it looks like a lamp or something: can a light speed be on all time like this? thx 🙂

LearnMyShot says:

the “yellow thing is the speedlight”

adhamyaadham says:

Hi. where is exactly the speedlight located here? is it between the double umbrella? what is this yellow device set between the double umbrella? thx 🙂

LearnMyShot says:

LearnMyShot says:

Great point.
I used the strobe at a minimum power setting. I actually covered this topic in the article. If you go on the site link in video description locate this tutorial via “browse lessons” you can read my thoughts about use of flash and baby development… (sorry youtube does not allow links in comments)
