A selection of my best portraits since I own my 5D Mark III, which is for a little over three months now. Owned a 500D/Rebel T2i before, the difference is vast, I believe I don't need to tell you. You can find others on my website www.florianbieler.de or on facebook, if you got that.
Here we got some taken with the 100mm 2.8L:
Before that I owned the 100mm 2.8 non-L, also great for portraits.
The 70-200 4.0 non-L also makes a nice portrait lens, if space is available.
And these ones were taken with the Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC
I love that thing.
I love multiple light candids like those examples in your posts. Thank you for your experimentation and, especially, for sharing the rig. It sounds like the key element of the Nissan cord is a switch for external use. I will research this gear.Side brackets with posts as handles or mounting of flash heads used to be in lots of camera store bins as used. Sometimes at yard sales! That would work to hold the Odin controller.
Do you mix any Strato receivers into the Odin setup?
Is there a preflash that would cause any issue with old-style "generic" optical triggers placed on a studio-style power pack?
I used to do a lot of this with pure optical triggers for editorial work. Had a kit of spring clamps, threaded clamps, magic-arms, hand-driven lag screws with 1/4-20 tops, a real do-everything little case. Lots of duct-tape, of course. I plan to be doing this for events, weddings, this year. I already do this (multiple speedlites) for vacation rental/RE shooting.
At this point I am planning on using 550's instead of a jump to 600's. I do have one 580ex, a bunch of Vivitar 285s that I will swap for used 550's.
Again thanks for posting
