323/354 – A speedlite exercise

Animals, Photography

How exciting! My new Magmod kit arrived today.  Magnet modifiers are sleek, easy to use modifiers for most speedlites.   I bought a couple of accessories including the basic kit with some gels, Maggrid (a honeycomb grid) and Magsphere (a round, rubber diffuser).  I was itching to get out and try it but in the absence of a subject, I had to make do with my wooden bear.  I practiced with two speedlites at varying angles.   Now I’d like to scale this up a bit i.e. with a human subject and a nice location!   The images in this post are straight out of camera – the main image is my favourite kind of single light photography – the flash is positioned slightly behind the subject to the right with the Maggrid attached.

Below:  Flash position camera left with Magsphere diffuser and another flash positioned diagonally opposite.
