In the first part of this post, you might recall I placed 2 Canon 600EX-RT Speedlites inside my Photoflex Octodome.
That served as my main light for the most part.
Where needed I introduced a 3rd 600EX-RT with a grid to use as an accent when I photographed Lianna at a local park.
Since this was the first time I worked with Lianna, I tried to keep the equipment to a minimum.
I wanted to be sure I was talking with her as much as I could instead of fussing with gear.
It really is a delicate balance.
Having too much gear can disrupt the rhythm of a photo shoot.
Not having what is needed might cause you to lose control of the lighting.
Even when I’m working without assistants, like in this case, I bring one light stand.
I find that a necessity since my light placement (with its light modifier) will usually make or break my pictures.
On this particular morning, I photographed Lianna in 2 locations because I wanted more variety in our images.
For the indoor images you see here, I only had 1 light stand but I did have one of those little plastic stands for Speedlites.
That allowed me to set my 3rd Speedlite on the ground and stairs and aim my Speedlite where it was needed.
