So I went to the Doll Factory for a Fresh Meat practice last night to test out the two-light setup. I was VERY encouraged by the results and can't wait to try it out in the real combat situation of a bout (a two-day tournament is coming at the end of the month). Still a little tweaking to do but it was bitchen to roam around and have the lighting change depending on what angles I was shooting from on the rink. What was cool was that the two small flashes covered a good portion of the rink that includes my favorite shooting positions. There is a little shadow problem because of the railing and the poles in the infield but the other light helps to minimize the impact and soften them up. This is gonna be bitchen if I can pull it off.
That is Thomas Refferson on the right . . can't miss him. I think the off-camera lights really make it pop. There's some stray ambient too.
She is lit by the lights and the flag is lit by a window behind it. I'm real pleased with the lighting on her.
This is with one light behind me and one behind them on the left. Still moving around the rink, the lights are stationary.
They are right next to one of the lights. which is because I'm roaming around. I had the lights behind them for some real dramatic shots just by wandering to the other side of the rink.
