    Tonight , I set up two flashes with an optical trigger firing the other one - they have all been a little underexposed so far and I want them perfect .... downloading pics - cleaning blood off bottom lip [ the air rifle has a bit of a kick to it when placed in the wrong position ]

    The umbrellas can be seen in these reflections ....



    They turned out a bit brighter than previously - I ended up at F4 but they don't look quite sharp enough for me .
