    I’m displeased. My friend resides in the next room. I’m aggravated because he over recent weeks grew outstanding at getting all women. The guy discovered the Master Attraction site by Jake Ayres (Search in Google). Now I hear him bringing ladies back. He’s consistently bringing the hottest women back. I hear it. It’s gross. I wish he had not discovered that site. I am green with envy!

    Nicely explained use of the CLS system with two flashes. For your test exposure, you had a much slower shutter speed, which would allow for more ambient light for the background, right? When you chose to go to 1/ 200th for the flash, that reduced the amount of ambient light in the background. would have been nice to have an explanation behind that choice, as well as why you don’t use a light meter.

    Good tutorial, you break it down nicely. I just got 2 sb700’s and an sb910. Been playing with and it your video showed me a few options I had not thought about.

    hi was this on autofocus or manual? If it was manual, how did you correctly focus as you’re doing a self portrait? Cheers

    Great stuff! I love how “down on my level” this video is! I’m a community college drop out trying to build a business – lulz – and this is the sort of video that makes my day. informative, demonstrative, and to the point. I dig.

    did you have to meter for the flashes at all?

  16. Pedro Karsan says:

  17. Pedro Karsan says:

    Can I do this with a D7000?

    Hi Clive Owen!!

    In practice, i think you’d find the control preflash (That sends the signals to your strobes before the actual exposure is taken) from the camera’s CLS would cause the LumoPro to optically trigger too soon. That’s what happened when I tried this method using the new Canon camera lighting controls on my T3i mixed between two Canon flashes and my inexpensive studio strobes in optical slave mode. Just my very late, two cents. 😉
