Two speedlites, one stage

in Photos, Technique

The following diagrams illustrate how the photos were lit at the Indian Rims Asian University Games.

Two lights placed on each side of stage to create cross lighting effect
Strobist
Camera shutter speed set to 1/50 and variable aperture. Two Canon 580EX speedlites placed on loudspeakers, on manual power at1/4 and 1/8 on the left and right respectively.

A couple of test shots:

Exposure looks good.

I think the motion blur on the hands is kinda cool with the use of slow shutter speed.
