I stumbled onto this shot, and it was superb. Not your usual XMM shot and the simple B/W highlights nature was great.
It was taken with:
Now comes the issue, can someone advise on whether I can do without the serious studio equipment and still capture this?strobist info: ETTL 4-1 A:B ratio triggered with disabled master 580EX II; A is key 24" square Ezybox, camera right, 580EX II about 45 degrees; B is fill, camera left, 43" shoot through white umbrella, about 90 degrees from center.
I am not keen on simply using photoshop, which I seldom use to manufacture this shot.
I have my DSLR, a SB 900, plus some older model TTL flashes for older film based Nikons and I can buy some background material if needed.
