Kit lens, 18mm, f6.3, 1/100 sec, 12sec self timer. Using two Opus 40 strobes with umbrella reflectors.

I know it needs work, and I really do need some back-drops, but I thought it might start a few similar posts. A small cluttered living room makes a terrible studio.

Ira,

Not too bad, did you use a timer or remote to trip the shutter?

The last time I saw someone use the self timer, it was pretty entertaining to watch the run back to his spot before the photo was taken.

Self timer, but it is a small room, not far to run. This was shot at 18mm after all.

I like your version. The one time I tried this, it was for a photo mug for my hubby's birthday. It took me many exposures to get one useable - it was in my pre-Pentax days. So my hat is off to you for carrying it off so well- I found this harder and more frustrating that I had expected.

Nice lookingfamily Ira! I've wanted to try the family portrait myself, but realize without suplemental lighting, I will end up with shaddows on the walls by using just the overhead mounted flash. I would appreciate knowing more about your external strobes and set up? What would such a set up cost? Jay
