6 is my fav...I hate shadows in my flash photography. I'd have used another fill light at low power to ward them off.

Wow man, really your photography has come a LONG way already. The lighting looks fantastic here.

Ahh i just got done with an 11 hour drive and i cannot see straight.

Thanks for the comments guys. Ive been working a bit at getting my lighting the way i like it. Yea, i hate shadows, so you can see that i started to move away from that wall that i thought would be cool in the first place. I underestimated its distractiveness.

I was actually using two flashes and still got the shadow. I guess my 430exII is a little more powerful than i expected. Ill have to tone it down a bit.

Back it down or position it further away. You want it to evenly light the area. Macky has some perfect strobe shots..minimal shadow perfect balance.

No, not one little bit. But I love those shots. :bigthumb:

I have a 430EXII also. Do you have two - did you set one up to go off wirelessly?
Ive only got one of those. My other flashes are older and non compatible with my canon gear, so i just use radio poppers. I wish i had a 580 just for ease, but this way feels more creative, so i like it.
