Hi,

I want to create a hi key effect using my mobile portrait kit.

I am using the nikon D50

SB800 speedlight as a master on my D50

I have purchased a backdrop stand with a white muslin backdrop (2m widex 3m height)

I want to be able to overexpose the backdrop.

What is the best way to do this ?

I was thinking of buying an SB600 and attatching it to a mini tripod to use as a slave.

What settings would I have to use on the SB800 and the SB600 ?

Or is there a better way ?

Please give me your suggestions

Thanks

Daz

The Sb-600 is a very good choice, You can adjust it to be +1 or +2 stops over your SB-800 and if you spot meter on the subject you can still use TTL.
