Default Overheated Rio Samba

I don't remember the last time I tried shooting in portrait orientation. Anyways, this one is from the Oly w/50mm OM-mount lens, two flashes - one from the top left and the other as a backlight using an orange gel.

Your flash technique is getting very good! Great color, sharpness and composition.

Thanks, Greg. To be sure, I'm still learning and playing but I beginning to understand the why's and where's about flashes, gels, placement, manual flash vs TTL. As in most stuff camera-wise, I'm finding going "manual" is best with flashes, too.

Gary great shot, yes you are right about going manual with flashes the TTL systems are terrific these days for getting proper exposure, but they do not know when you want to be creative, just like the camera manual brings out the creativity.

Are you using flashes that can be controlled by olympus's rc system?

I am finding my self using this more & more with shoots, I am using fl-50r, & metz48 both can be controlled by the camera's rc mode, beats having to go to each flash to change settings, as is the case when using my hot shoe radios plus less equipment hanging around to get knocked over. I still use radios on shoots requiring more than 2 flashes though or when using my studio lights.

I do have the FL36R, Charles. But, I'm finding I use a couple of Vivitar 285HVs with a Cactus V2. I suppose can can use the FL36R as a main strobe and put a Wein Peanut on one of the Vivitars. Matter of fact, I haven't tried that and just came up with the idea as I was typing this. See ya. I'm off to play!
