Mel

Mel decided to do a bit of modelling at Pullenvale too.

This shot was taken with Greg's 85L (@ f/1.4), with a gel'd SB26 into a silver umbrella camera right triggered by an SB-600 on camera (diffused and pointing at the ceiling at 1/32nd).

The 85 is incredibly sharp and has a very small DoF at this range.

    Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L USM - it's a quite expensive portrait lens (bit of $3k these days).

    Well for a quick translation - an 85L is a very expensive Canon portrait lens (85mm f/1.2L USM).
    A gel'd SB26 means I took a coloured "gel" (used in stage lighting) and placed it over a Nikon SB-26 flash, which I shot into a sliver reflective umbrella.
    The SB-26 has an optical trigger (i.e. it goes off when it sees another flash), so I fired a Nikon SB-600 flash at low power on my camera to trigger the SB-26.
    Make sense now ?
