My face has to be behind the camera; my arms have to be raised next to my face; i have to cradle my lens in my palm; i have to use my left thumb and middle finger to spin the focus ring (another limitation i've placed on myself: manual focus); i have to bend my legs into a squat.
I went for drama today and found a green sun drenched wall bathed in a spotted side light. i set up my Vivitar behind a white umbrella and set it to full extension for a matching pointed dramatic light.
I've elected to using one light and balancing with ambient till i can get my hands on more receivers for my other flash. The slave peanut is miserably UNreliable particulary outdoors.
