Played around with the Sunpak 522 off camera for the first time as a second optical slave light source to my Canon 580 EX II. I did not do any post shoot editing for the images above.
I really like the power that the Sunpak provides, along with the fine tuning of it’s manual controls. My Grandpa certainly maintained his camera gear well!
I started off with the aperture wide open at f/1.8 and then gradually brought it down to f/22. The Sunpak was left of frame bounced off a warm reflector above frame. The 580 EX II was on camera with a warm diffuser and angled at the scene. The image with the hard shadow, well I changed the angle of the Sunpak with the reflector right of frame.
As I brought down the aperture, I also lengthened the shutter speed and increased the flash output slightly on both.
