    I'm quite pleased with the results, but it could be better. Now, all I need is another strobe for added silhouette definition, a softbox, reflector, etc...

    FYI, the shots were taken at 1/800-1/1250s @ f4-5.6, flash output 1/64-1/32. (Still experimenting, so don't take the numbers as a fixed setting)

    sorry to disappoint you guys but no ultraman style this time haha...

    Just a quick post process but I'll start with my fav shot... a high key of Terrance, simply great eyes and he's got the look

    Nice collection of Pentax Portraits. Better keep all the photos, and let's see how we all look like after 5 or 10 years

    Pretty good results, Baracus. I'm not a flash guy, but I'd love to take some similar photos someday

    Indeed, I've found 1/180 flash sync speed to be a limiting factor to outdoor off camera strobing wrt using the PT-04 wireless flash triggers. Perhaps the cord with which will support high speed sync will be useful in that respect. Probably give it a try next outing.

    BTW, do you mean that the YongNuo triggers work above 1/180, but its just that Pentax DSLR refuse to send the flash trigger voltage above that speed?

    ha.. ha.. I think that pic will make an impact in B/W

    Interesting technique. Thanks for sharing the photos, technique and gizmos
    Yeah, maybe we should setup a strobing 'booth' for next outing. Does the YongNuo trigger the PT04?

    Thanks Fengwei. Me neither. Only my second time doing strobing work.

    I have a TTL cord and the sync speed was the same. 1/180s, no higher. (Although I think it randomly worked at times both wired/wireless. Was too frustrated at the failure rate to notice)

    I tried the PT04 on my G9 only on the day before the outing since I discovered some HSS strobing works on Flickr with the combo. Not sure what triggers what though. I'm still a complete newbie at lighting set-ups. But as long as one understand how light works, it can't be that hard, can it?

    Class in session at next outing? Bring down all the triggers/ flashes/ accessories you've got. And sunglasses too if you don't wanna get blinded.

    Looks like I'm outta luck if I want a cheapo HSS strobe set-up with Pentax. Only workable with the AF540 flash on the hotshoe as the master to co-ordinate the other off-camera flashes. Time to dust off my Nikon D70 too for my strobist work...

    After y'day, I realized that a long lens seems to compensate somewhat. On a short lens (Eg.50), there will be a need to stop down to slow shutter speed, but this increases DOF. A longer lens like a 85mm or 135mm should still give shallow DOF while stopped down. I read about using an ND filter as well, but no chance to try so far.

    Here are some of my shots.
    Quite the turnout!

    I got ready with a rarely used FA85, K24 and an extension tube section. Ended up only doing portraits after being inspired by Baracus. Took the chance to practice using the strobe/bounce card for fill light. The extension tube sat in the bag unused.

    Hope the outings get bigger and better

    Gearing up
