    playing with the strobes outside

    Decided to see how my big strobe would work in the bright sun. I used my favorite subject.

    single photogenic strobe set at 1/16 power fired thru chimera.

    second strobe added to hit the rear of the bike. bare bulb.

    second strobe suspended above the bike and fired into an umbrella

    Here you go. Notice the sky and how overexposed it is. Using strobes allowed me to underexpose the ambient light.

    the first shot looks great, but you could use some kind of diffused strobe on your right...to light the front and lower part of the bike. i almost never shoot bare bulb. the subject gets hotspots way too easy.

    I agree. I wanted to put my second strobe on camera right but I didn't have an extension cord handy. I could have put a reflector there but I was testing the optical triggers more than anything so I didn't really care about trying to do a "real" lighting job.
