SB-800's arrive

My additional two Nikon SB 800 Speedlight's arrived yesterday as promised from B&H photo and initial tests confirm that wireless TTL lighting has never been easier. Using myself as a subject, I placed an SB-800 behind me with diffusion dome on and pointing straight up. The second SB-800 was placed to my right and pointed directly at me. The third unit was placed on camera with a diffusion dome and bounced from a white ceiling. I experimented with various exposure adjustments on the remote units and after about 10 minutes had a nicely lit portrait.

Look forward to posting more details (and photos) once a get a subject other than myself. Sad isn't it. In the mean time visit Dave Black Photography and check out his Workshop at the Ranch.
