Hi all,

I came up with this idea this morning...

I would love to take pictures like the type discussed here:

Instead of having 3 monolights.
  • Could I get two 500 ws monolights for the background and one high powered Speedlight for the subject?[/*]
  • Could these all be fired wirelessly from either the slave system or the Cactus or Pocket Wizard wireless ?[/*]
I am mainly interested in taking a few pictures of my baby girl. So I won't need to take full length photos of any adult.

Like I have said in a few other threads, I am just trying to get the most from my limited supply of funds...And maybe in the future, supplement the gear I get now with extra monolights and speedlights...

Hopefull this can be done...

Hi Alf,

Like I said in your other post. Get A DVD called "The Speed of Light" by: Joe McNally. Is is a genuine Nikon DVD but I'm pretty sure you can get it from Amazon at a discount. The Nikon store sells them. I got mine from a camera store. It is very good and shows just what can be done with SB-800 and SB 600 speedlights. I own Calumet Travel lights but do not use them as much as I use my two SB-800's and a SB-600 on my D200.

I just looked on Amazo and they do sell this DVD for $23.95 new.
