[BTS Video] Tips On Combining Reflectors And Strobes

Last time, photographer Jay P Morgan gave us tips on the best way to use a reflector. This time he shows us how he combined a Hensel 1200w Porty Pack with a beauty dish attached and the photoflex 5 in 1 reflectors.

There's an unspoken assumption that you will have people holding the reflectors for you.  As we all know, that's not always the case. Try shooting with at least one strobe and a couple of reflectors all by yourself.  Sure it's not impossible, but it ain't the easiest thing in the world.

You need light stands and clamps. Done. Everything's faster with assistants, but you can do it all yourself with stands and clamps.

I'm curious about something. If he wants a big Deep blue sky, why does he shoot at 1/100th of a second and not faster? 

A change in the exposure for the ambient will also effect and fill or rim provided by the sun.  I myself might still underexpose the ambient 2/3 to 1 stop and see if I like it on the model.

I assume his strobes won't sync any faster?
