Just love this Nifty Fifty - lightweight great in low light and excellent for portraits. This one taken on the 7D @ F3.2 and 1/80 with ISO 100 - no flash. Color tones corrected with Shutter Down Pancake PF2 template and ACDSee Pro

Great shot and processing. Looks like a painting
What software do you use to process the HDR files?
1) 1.3 crop I want this for using my 16-35 f2.8 as a walkaround effectively 20-48mm and for getting the extra reach on using long lenses. but has better IQ than the 1.6 crops
2) AF at f8 long lenses and teleconverters coupled with item 1 it stomps the 1Dx on the long end.
"Second shooting" is a common method that wedding photographers employ to make sure nothing is missed on a wedding day. It involves the principal photographer hiring an assistant to photograph with them. Basically two photographers at one wedding.Very familiar with the wireless on the 580EXII - really enjoy that option especially when in manual mode - can get some cool shadowing effects. I took a look at the books and see there are various versions of Light Science and Magic. I would presume you mean the 4th edition? I saw several on amazon I appreciate the response and tips on items to acquire
Lightweight/Starter portrait gear? A good starting point would be:
Shoot Thru/Reflective Umbrella
You can use your 7D wireless commander to trigger your 580EXII, but I would consider investing into a wireless trigger system. Once you're comfortable with one light, you can move into two light setups. Most of the Strobist 101 seems out of date, but its very much a good starting point for reading. Speaking of reading, if you want to learn more about light and off camera flash I recommend:
