I got a D90 only yesterday and so can finally use my sb900 in wireless mode. However, I am only taking my very first steps into flash photography. In the uploaded pic I had the wireless flash on the right whilst shooting slightly from the left (as you can see). Can you help me using flash? I suppose, there shouldn't be any shadows in a correctly lit photograph? Right now I'm not so bothered about framing and focus, just working on lightning. Any help much appreciated! Thanks!
I saw your post and since nobody answered I joined this group long enough to compose this response.
Your highlights are a bit overblown.......................either factor in negative flash or use a diffuser.
and just because I can't help myself....................watch your background.
rule of thumb for lighting... there should be three lights to the subject...left , right, center..... but for a single flash try diffusers.... or decrease the flash compensation, get a bit farther from the subject, and get the subject farther from the background (Inverse square law)....
In this shot, I can see you are too close to the subject, but I have one secret, when I want to get close...I put 2 or 3 layers of tissue paper over my flash... ;-)
some links might help as well....
