"SB-28 for portraits"


Charlotte, US
          

I would like to use my F100/SB-28 for portrait photography when there isn’t enough natural lighting... I have seen umbrella stands with flash units attached (either facing away from subject as a reflector or facing towards the subject as a diffuser)

Can anyone comment or have other suggestions…

Bryan,

Check out this link. It's the best intro to umbrellas I believe there is anywhere. As far as portrait specifics, there are some standard setups. A high, centered light is called a beauty light. Off to the side and level, and dark background, is Rembrandt. The best all around for most of us non-experts is in front, above eye level, and off-center. In other words, you and the camera in front of the subject, and the umbrella off to your side.

And after that link boosts your confidence, this is guaranteed to make you feel insignificant, but it's interesting as hell:
