Lets take a break from the IR images for a day. Today I received the first piece of what will eventually become the lighting rig in my improvised home studio. I got the first of two Canon 580ex flashes, and wouldn't you know it, the day I get the first one, Canon announces the release of the 580EX II. Anyway, regardless, I am extremely pleased with the performance of the flash. I am now waiting for the second unit, the ST-E2 wireless trigger, the lighting stands and the umbrella. Once I get all my lighting gear together I should be able to do some interesting still life (as well as portraits and macro).

I took this image with the new flash and also spent some time in Photoshop applying some of the retouching people do for glamour shots. I need to learn more about glamour retouching...

Technical Specs: Canon 5D, 85 f/1.2 II, f/2, 1/100s, ISO 100.

Nice! You will have to post a photo of your setup once it is all assembled.
