Now that I have a light stands that I got before that marathon photo session with over 200 LuLaRoe garments, I tend to find myself playing with light more and more after the kids are asleep. This shot I got with a 45w shoot through umbrella (constant light) lighting the face of the Dean Guitar body and the floor. Then to the camera right I had a second 45w shoot through umbrella (constant light) lighting the front of amp and stool. Then behind the amp I put my grandfather’s old Sunpak flash set to a 1/16 power. But the exact placement of that light took a while to get. Started with that light facing the wall, but then I settled on placing the flash on the far right edge and nearing touching the back of the amp and having the light bounce of the amp to the wall behind. The Sunpak was triggered by an optical slave, I don’t have pocket wizards so my Canon 580EX II was on the Sony’s hotshoe and set at 1/128 power then bounced directly off the ceiling above to trigger the Sunpak behind the amp. It was a fun hour combining constant light sources with the 2 flashes.
