Sury, you are showing progress and the equipment works nicely from the looks of it. The flowers look good...and with your dedication, you'll be an excellent shooter in minimal light conditions. :)

Thanks for sharing,
Yildiz

Thank you Yildiz. Learning a lot in the process. Forcing to visualize the shot which is a new thing
for me. So far my strategy has been spray and pray.

Sury

These are with 70-400G

Without flash

With 3 flash arrangement described previously. I put the camera in 10 sec timer mode, click and stand to the side with each
of my hands holding one of the flashes looking like a gorilla with its hands splayed. Had to remember where the flash was in the
previous shot to make adjustments after chimping - no pun intended. :lol:

Nice images, Sury, but I like the first one for making the flowers appear like jewels shimmering in the dark. :) Working with multiple devices can be complicating things a little. Over time, I think you'll settle for certain device arrangements and adjustments and all will be looking even better. Good luck!

Thanks for sharing,
Yildiz

Yildiz,
Thank you. First one is without flash. I agree with your observation regarding over complicating things. My first phase is learning how to get "natural" looking images. Then learn how to use light for effects.

1 and 3 are to my taste with 3 being a real winner. I have never used flash and fear I would fail completely if I tried. Is that a rationale for preferring natural or just regular indoor lighting? Maybe. Still, I find the light to be overpowering in some of your images (1st in set one of this page and 2nd in set two). Take my comments with a grain of salt as I have no idea how I would light those subjects other than waiting for the sun to shine in the window at the right time.

JT,
Thank you. As it were, I trying to figure the same effect. Get close even lighting without harsh flash effects.
We are on same page.
