So What's in my bag part two!

August 28, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

So I covered what bodies and lenses I use in the last post, I'll cover my basic lighting in this post. 

So still in my bag, I have two Yongnuo speed lights, a YN568EX and YN560III. These are great, and basically for what they cost disposable. Although saying that ive been using the YN568EX for a couple of years and its never let me down yet. This also has the advantage of being able to shoot in high speed sync so I can push my shutter over the camera sync speed. I can also shoot his in TTL mode if I choose. The YN560, I tend to just use as a slave or a secondary... its cheap and cheerful and works well, it is fully manual though so has no bells and whistles - still gets the job done though. When using these off camera (which you really should be doing) I fire them using Yongnuo YN-622N and 622B TX triggers. Very reliable and good value for money. 

My most used light is my Godox AD-360 Wistro - this is great as it is as powerful as a plug in studio strobe and really has let me do shoots that just wouldn't be possible with speedlights alone. Using the Cells II wireless trigger I can also use this in HSS. This means that I can shoot outside at shallow apertures and actually over power the harsh sun light. I can use the Godox light with any softbox, umbrella or light modifier that I want. My absolute favourites  being a beauty dish or Westcott Apollo Orb Softbox. 

Using the Godox and beauty dish combo I am able to get shots like this in bright sunlight. 

So that really sums up what lighting I use on location and other than a ton of random bits and bob, what's in my bag.
