I want to try something a different.
I'm a Combat Rescue Medic (part time AF Reserves) and would like to try a shot(s) of one of our HC-130 rescue aircraft against the setting sun of the Florida coastline.
My plan: I've borrowed 4 SB-600's from Public Affairs and would set them up on the ground to illuminate the first third of the aircraft with the setting sun just above and behind (or even through) the cockpit.
I'm going to head out about an hour early to set things up and anticipate exposure but I'm not sure how to set up the four SB-900s.
Possibly use my SB-600 as the master and the SB-900s as remote slaves.

I think I'll use ISO 200 with in Aperture priority set at f18 or so to get it all in focus but how do I increase flash output evenly from all the flashes if I nned more light?

What would all recommend? Thanks.

I have the strobes through Friday night so I have a couple of chances.
Thanks,
John
