Been trying all sorts with these new flash heads, but my pepper grinder and a tangerine are not really going to set the world on fire.

And neither am I of course, but ended up plonking the lights all over the room then returning to the same spot to see how the changed the scene.

This one's got a light far away to the right (umbrella) filling in my ear and the soft box is on low power a couple of feet to the left.

Got 50 happy shots, but the more intense look just seems to suit this blue channel mono stuff better..

Camera:Canon EOS 5D
