    I have a few opportunities coming up after Xmas to shoot some decent Honda's along with some models and even a couple of portraits and I'm looking to purchase some decent lighting equipment to allow me to get better shots and also more flexibilty with the shots I can take.


    What do you use?

    For my exploring and iunderground photos :Grin:


    But I have 3 flashes, which i would set up with light stands (i just bought a set of 3 and mounts for 40 quid, I already had the flashes) set 2 of them up as slaves, and have the primary flash on the camera....

    I've got a vivitar flash gun, you can adjust loads of stuff on it...but I just leave it to do what it wants, and adjust the settings on the camera to fit it....Then I've just got 2 simple flashes, only little things....


    Its a vivitar 5600


    vivitar.


    I put them onto light stands similiar to these...

    Set the flashes on the stands to Slave Mode....the main flash triggers the other flashes to go off....very simple but it works....
