Wasn't planning on going out last night, but got a knock on the door at about 6 and there was Dave raring to go.
First time we'd tried using multiple flashes out in the city, so it's all a bit of a leaning curve.
it's a 580EX 2 on a 5D with a 24-105 lens on, with a 550EX on a tripod off to the right.
it was on ETTL mode with the "ratio" heavily weighted towards the off camera flash, so that the main flash didn't really have much effect at all.
Had a few "comms" issues, as in, the second flash didn't always go off, but its ace to be able to set the flash power of the 550 remotely from the 580.
Ended up using manual flash power as it's a bit more predictable!
But yeah - think this out-door flash stuff my be an amusement for the near future.
