The equipment I ordered and wrote about last week finally arrived!
I knew I should have bought two lights, but, I have been practicing with the one light that I have and have captured a few nice shots.
I ended up ordering another flash and umbrella stand last week, so that should be arriving later this week.
I will post some shots that are worth posting later today or tomorrow.
The overall goal was to buy Alien Bee’s to start messing around with off-camera flash photography.
That plan was pushed to the back burner and I decided to go with a much cheaper alternative.
I have one Canon 430EX flash, so I bought a CowboyStudio Single Flash Shoe Swivel kit along with their NPT-04 wireless triggers.
The kit comes with a 33 inch soft white shot through umbrella.
I bought an extra 33 inch black and silver umbrella along with a 43 inch multi disc light reflector.
Obviously this will only give me one off camera flash. But, I figured I would start off small to see what I can do.
The total for everything listed above was $90 since I already had the Canon 430EX.
I should be receiving everything by the end of this week, so you will be seeing some shots posted shortly after that.
A list of everything that I bought is listed below:
CowboyStudio Single Flash Shoe Swivel Kit
CowboyStudio NPT-04 wireless triggers
33 inch black and silver umbrella
43 inch multi disc light reflector
