Anna+Samar’s Party Bus Trip

Anna+Samar’s BusTrip 1472, originally uploaded by Iain Fergusson.

I’m busy, so you only get one photo.

It was lots of fun. I had two off-camera flash set-ups. One for on the bus, which was a bit more bullet-proof, and one for inside the pubs. It required a change whenever I got on or off the bus, but it wasn’t a big problem.

The in bus setup was an SB-400 on a TTL cord. Small, light, and there is no auto-focus assist light on the flash, so the on camera assist light is used. This is what I used for the photo above.

Inside setup was SB-800 as master on camera, with SB-600 and Big Bounce diffuser in left hand.
