Yeah i been cracking about or talking about of camera flashes for a quite some time, and my biggest happiness about having the D80 at my casa, is that i can use the CLS or of camera flash, using the built in camera flash on the D80 as master/camera master and then the SB 600 as slave! Its alot of fun, so i just went for a couple of self portraits tonight, wanted to make sure there was not "extra" light so to speak when i was shooting this. This is alot of fun i think, its interesting to see what every setting does what each power does etc

All of these are flash on the left hand side of the camera and almost perpendicular to myself as the subject at 1/8 power and at 1/16 power and the built in flash to 1/125 power for minimal "appearance" in the images.

Its quite dramatic what you can achieve with this of camera lightning stuff, well here is a preview of more to come

I m just learning when it comes to this so i hope i will improve as time goes by :)


Update: I tried cross lightning with two light sources one being the sun and the other being the strobe, i think i could have pulled this of a lot better if I wasnt the model and i had some one else just standing there stationary, while i adjusted the flash angle power etc... but ehh what you going to do about that

Nice, I think you need to add a reflector off the the right to illuminate your face better. take some more photos with that.

Yeah if i wanted to illuminate my face i would have used a different angle with the flash and a reflector, but i wanted to get this half face/half black look, i m just playing around with the of camera flash and i think its great!

But i m going to try out with the home built reflector that i have stored :)
