I have been asked my a friend if I would like to take some glamour shots but I think they have more faith in my ability than I do. I know the general theory behind what I am thinking of doing but not sure how to pull it off. I'll give as much detail as I can on what I am thinking.
I have a D80, and so far no external flash. Yet.
I am thinking of using my 18-70mm 2.8 I have on its way to me.
The shots will be posed in a room the size of an average bedroom.
Am I correct in assuming I could use a SB600 (or 800) off camera in remote mode using the D80 as a commander? Can this be done with OR without the onboard flash itself being used?
I'm also concerned about the flash being a bit harsh, so wondering is there some sort of good diffuser that would be suitable to soften it suitable for the Speedlights - not sure if theres a clip on diffuser included with it or a 3rd party one available. I'm also concerned about shadows though, so not sure if a 2nd remote on the other side of me would be required/better/possible to just lessen the shadow or if using the built in for fill flash would solve this problem.
Oh, I'm really also hoping I can do it all successfully TTL.
Thanks in advance.
