Bought some new flash triggers. Not expensive ones but not extremely cheapy ones either. Yongnuo YN-622C's.

Only got the one flashgun atm but will probably get another soon. Not another 600ex, far too expensive. Will probably go down the yongnuo route and get an extra trigger for under £100.



Just a quick test playing around with the triggers. Flash was just positioned to the left. Nothing diffusing the light so some harsh reflections in places. My new westcott 43" umbrella came today though so will be playing around learning some stuff through out the week

Good job on purchasing a set of triggers. Radio triggers are a must if you intend to photograph outside, or inside when shooting events since people often bring their own cameras and can set off your flashes.

The semi-pro DSLRs usually have a popup flash that you can use to trigger your speedlights.

If you want to try to properly light that bottle, you'll probably want more lights, and either a strip box or two, or maybe two rectangular pieces of white poster board.

If you do end up purchasing more speedlights, you may want to look into the Yongnuo YN560.

As you learn, you will probably really enjoy flash photography.

Yeah my 7D can trigger my 600ex, but ONLY in ETTL (which is weird, I would of thought it'd only offer manual).

Wanted the triggers so I can use manual off camera flash more, rather than replying on ETTL. I could of bought some cheaper triggers for only manual, then swapped between pop up flash triggering and the cheapy triggers to swap between ettl and manual, but urgh sounded like a pain in the arse so I got a 'all in one' job.

I'll be buying a few soft boxes soon as well, any recommendations? Is there a way to mod a large softbox into a strip box? Duct tape and black fabric? And probably an extra trigger/flash in the next month or so.

Your 600 EX should have a slave mode so that it can be triggered with another flash.

As far as soft boxes, you can get away without a strip box by covering the box with black cloth if necessary. It depends how you need to control your light.

In regard to a softbox recommendation, it will really depend on your budget. I recommend you check out BHPhotovideo to get an idea of what is out there, as well as pricing.

Depending upon how involved you become, you will learn that light control can be complex and fun at the same time.

One more thing, be sure that whatever softbox you purchase has a grid that can be purchased as well to reduce light spill.

Yes it does have a slave mode, but it will only operate in ETTL in slave mode when being triggered by the pop up flash. I prefer working in manual, but couldn't use the flash off camera in manual without a trigger (or cord etc etc). Normally pop up flash triggering a flash gun only allows Manual as far as I know, which is why the 7D/600EX combo is weird.

I've been reading books and watching workshops for a long time now, just having some fun putting it all together Recently watched Zack Arias's One Light workshop, so so amazing.

Will post some new shots soon

Yeah very. Still had zoom control and FEC but not full manual. Really strange. ETTL is great technology, but I'd rather use manual and learn from seeing mistakes than getting what the camera thinks is a perfect exposure.
