    Greeting Matt, how are you doing? I just picked up a Nikon SB-800 from a private seller and looking forward to doing "strobist." My question to you is that in one of your YouTube video you expose for the background and allow the lighting to light your subject on the balcony. What were your setting as I am having a hard time trying to do the same.

    Good Evening Matt from Manila; Ph.. I am about to buy gear for my first home studio but as most people I am on a tight budget, I wont go through the full list of gear I am going to buy but the items are enough to give u an idea of where I am heading. Iam buying soft box umbrellas, one Silver reflective the other Translusent both 40". Instead of buying the speed lights as u use I am looking into using 75w AC Slave Flashes. What is you opnion of my idea please; I dont mind being told I am wrong or given a better idea. We never get to old to learn and I am no pro yet lol. I shot Nikon, a D7000 and a F5; thanks to you experance I use mostly Tamron lens. I watch your teachings more than any one now and even more than the Fro Jared Polain who I began learning from two years ago. I am a 55 year young man starting life over again with a camera in my hand. So please help this Old Dog learn new trucks ASAP lol
