This is a photograph of a dancer/designer I met traveling/working on a cruise ship this past year. This shot was done with a CreativeLight UmbrellaBox (unfortunately they are discontinued...CL bring them back!) with a Nikon SB-900 zoomed to 200 crammed in there. I'm a huge fan of the Nikon CLS system and shot this using the commander mode on my D800 set to TTL (thanks for teaching me the joys of this Joe McNally!). I can't remember the specific +/- of the flash when set on TTL. I've been fortunate enough to work with some amazing people, and Bjorn was one of them. He came so prepared to the shoot it was amazing. He did his own makeup as well as making several incredible costumes. Thanks for making this a great shot Bjorn!

Thanks Ruzely! Wish I was in Kuala Lumpur right now. I haven't ever been over there, but have wanted to go forever.
