Makes a pleasant change from the people who can't light or pose and think a shot at f5.6 illustrates anything.
Thanks! I find that battling the harsh sunlight is very difficult, but it's a free, already setup, edge light I really enjoy the smaller setup I have now, less options is good for me. And if anyone considers a B1, I highly recommend it, except if you are a pro and need a whole days worth of battery juice, you would need 4 batteries that are hugely expensive. But for a hobbyist it's wonderful.
Hey you are welcome Viggo. I absolutely love your shots of the kids in the snow and have taken an interest in your progression with lights, from the EX's through several changes to the B1's
It is very interesting that you recommend the ProPhoto's so highly as Pookie dismisses them and prefers the Elinchromes, nothing wrong in personal preferences though. I like the idea of the B1's but in truth simply haven't had the need for them yet as I find the Einstein's and packs 'good enough' and HSS is not a priority for me. You are right about the sun making an excellent second light source/fill/rim light/back light or even main.
