This is assignment 2.1 for the strobist group that meet every 2nd and 4th week of every month to talk about off camera lighting especially speedlights. we meet at Everything photography the website is http://everyphotostore.com/index2.php?v=v1#/home/
they have such great stuff to sell even vagabonds which i am jealous i could never find one in the store and it's at a great price.
the picture on the left is me playing around with the size next to the Mississippi River Walk which i'm hosting a event on thursday 8/21/2014 for model's and new model's to add to there portfolio for free. ; ) you should be there. First one is bare flash next is a thin piece of paper that i put close to the bulb, In the second row and the second picture the flash is zoomed out and is only covering the paper. then i decide to take out my 45" umbrella and shot with it being 3 feet from the subject which is the first one in the second row in the picture then i brought it less then 6 inches from the subject because of the distance not the position change the apparent light size to sub just changed. For instance take a look at the example on the right the little white circle with it light being where the arrows are will get more hard or harsh lighting vs the whit box which is bigger then the subject so say the light source is 3 feet you subject will get a soft look up to about 6 feet away and extra soft from 3 feet away to half the size which 1.5 feet away from there it will wrap beautifully. Have any question put them in the comments
This was such a fun assignment and i suggest that everyone gives this club a chance. And You defiantly want to be at This epic photo shoot event.
