My shoot with Sachie Sanders


To those who may be unfamiliar with the name, sachie sanders is a member of viva hot babes, she appeared on the cover of playboy philippines’ july 2008 issue, she also has appeared on several issues of FHM Philippines.

Equipment: I brought two flashes, a canon 580ex and a nissin di622, since I wanted to do cross lighting. I only brought one receiver with me since I was hoping to trigger the nissin flash optically. Unfortunately the lighting setup didn’t quite work as the nissin flash wouldn’t fire. It was probably the batteries. I also brought a ring flash adaptor. I was planning to buy a 17-40mm f4L lens so i could get more dramatic angles, unfortunately I wasn’t able to buy one in time for the shoot. I had to rely on my 28-105mm lens and my 50mm prime lens which is why most of my shots were half body or portrait.


My camera: it looks menacing

The shoot was done in a certain tower in Makati. The staff of the place was probably paid very well by their employers as they seemed to be very enthusiastic about their jobs. So enthusiastic that they made their rounds more often than they were probably required to. They always kept a watchful eye on the model to make sure tha she was always comfortable. It was so nice of them.
Unfortunately for me, a lot of the pictures turned out to be unusable due to the high frequency of extra heads that appeared.

Anyway, here are the pics. (click on readmore below to see more photos) There are also more pics of the shoot on my multiply: http://jaywalker0415.multiply.com/photos/album/22/sachie_sanders

Hi, could I know if the Nissin Di622 would fire when using the live view mode of your canon eos dslr? Thanks!

@anonymous:
how are you trying to fire your Di622? is it mounted on your camera's hot shoe?

I'm thinking of buying the Nissin Di622.

I'd like to know if the Di622 would fire if I set my canon in live mode and yes mounted to the hotshoe.

Currently, i've tried several flashes and it would not fire them when mounted to the hotshoe when using live view mode as the manual stated it would fire non canon flashes.

I hope you could shed light on this matter. Also, how's the performance of this flash?
