It's time to start creating Christmas presents. If you already have a child you'll may know that pictures of it are a good place to start. So I transformed our living room into a strobist studio. Luckily we where able to move most of the furniture out of the way.
I tried to lite the background to bright white using four speedlites. One light stand and three gorilla pods where used to position them in the room. I'll have to do some research to find more efficient positions for them. My main light became a 60x60cm softbox and I got some light from a 50x70cm softbox from the left. A 580EXII was attached to each softbox.
The most important gear: The yellow duck assisted as a light dummy.
After about 300 shoots my 580EXII of the main light got tiered. But until that we got some very nice shoots. I'll post them after Christmas to keep the result as a surprise.
