_MG_6529 Ricky with Umbrellas and Hair Soft Box

Have been aggravating myself over dog portrait lighting for several years buying all sorts of equipment. Was going through pictures taken during a lighting seminar which I held here a few years ago for members of my Digipets Yahoo group, and decided to pull out my earliest flash accessories, umbrellas. Used two 580ex flashes with the umbrellas and a 430ex in a softbox between the background and posing stand. I put a Sunpak 383 with a slave on it behind the table, pointed at the background but I'm not sure it was triggered. You can see the lighting instructions here: (I don't like the color of the drape I put on the posing stand. I have to get some gray fabric.
