    The angles are making me nauseous, but other than that they're good.

    seems like the los angeles nightlife photography scene is stagnant, moving to vegas seems really appealing right now

    i had a trial period with my editor. They said try it for a week and we will tell you if we want you to go back to your old style. After 2 events they were like we like both. I just use them in different venues. If i am going to a club with lots of strobing lights i will use my bracket. If i go to a place that looks like a cave, i use the two flash setup. And always with celebs i have a bracket, i dont want to look like a monkey with the celebs.

    James, the new setup is, Flash in my left hand with lumiquest diffuser set at FEC+0.3 (as a main light) and then Onboard flash as my fill to trigger the Main using the commander mode, set at FEC+0. ISO range 1600 stepping to 3200 when needed.

    BTW that girl with that tats, is my good friend Sara, the girl is totally awesome. You make think she looks hot now via pics, but after you meet her and her personality gets to shine, you will think much more of her than just looks. Totally down to earth chick, and possibly the most beautiful chick in Vegas.

    Sounds cool! - are you getting much fill lighting from the onboard flash? Or just using it as a trigger?

    I've seen a lot of the spyonvegas/napkinnights/944 style shooting and yours definitely looks exemplary. Nice work. :coold:

    Looking good Al. Real good! :wavey:

    Does have a different look from the old stuff though, these look almost too "clean".

    You make a good observation on the "clean" look - but the images are definitely great looking and make the girls and venue look pretty. Can't beat that. You saw his older style and he has the ability to interchange between styles and shooting strategies.

    How far away from the camera do you hold the flash? Above, below or straight to the side?

    depends on what i want lit. you have to have a decent understanding of how you want to light a subject, since you are pretty much doing it on the fly.

    Is there anything you do in particular to get such great catchlights?

    I'm finding that is what is lacking big time right now for my shots
