Godox TT685S vs Yongnuo 560 IV and More Studio Lighting for Portrait Photography

It's been a while since our last update, sorry about that, but I can at least partially blame it on a broken ankle I suffered in January. I have not been about to put any weight on it for about the last 4-5 weeks. But my recovery has sped up and I am looking forward to shooting more videos and photos for the followers and fans of Hey Don't Shoot - Felix

Austin ( Instagram - @CreateYourVizion ) will be joining me for photography adventures here in El Paso. Meanwhile, I'll have to stay on top of Turner to keep trying to get him to upload new videos from North Carolina. The cool thing about Austin is that he had been watching Hey Don't Shoot on YouTube before he and I had ever met in person, so that's pretty much awesome. He's a great guy and a talented photographer and I have been hoping to meet someone local that I can shoot with to keep the channel going.

For our first video, we thought we'd tackle the subject of using external speed lights in a studio setting for portrait photography. I had just purchased my first full set of speed lights and a trigger a couple months ago and had only used them once prior to this shoot. (Check out that video right here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqmjX2Im8D0) And Austin just purchased his first external flash and trigger two weeks ago. So he brought his gear and I brought mine and the result is the latest video from Hey Don't Shoot for my Vlog, Gear Heads Are People Too.

Who's that handsome guy? :)


It took a little trial and error but we finally wear able to use the external speed lights to create that circular glow on the backdrop behind our model, Vanessa.



Behind the scenes camera dude. Hey, you've got to hold the camera steady.


Above and below, a couple different lighting set-ups.




The photo above is my favorite from the shoot. It's a two flash set-up, using an on camera flash as a trigger for an off camera flash acting as a slave.
