    I did a bridal shoot last week, and here are a few shots from the shoot. I used the same lighting rig used by Wedding photography rock-star David Ziser, for all the photos you see here (I used flash in every shot, but sometimes I balanced flash with natural light). David’s rig is made up of five small parts:

    1. A Quantum Qflash T5D (with a pocket-sized Quantum Turbo SC battery pack)
    2. A Quantum QNexus Wireless trigger that lets you control the Qflash from either a Nikon or Canon camera
    3. A white 39″ translucent shoot-through Umbrella
    4. A flash adapter bracket
    5. This is all mounted on top of a monopod (using that adapter I just mentioned) which is held by an assistant (in my case, I was lucky enough to snag RC to help me during the shoot).

    I was able to control the power of the flash from the LCD controls on back of my Nikon D700 (it could also be triggered by a D300, D200, etc. or any Nikon as long as you have a Nikon Commander Unit on top).

    Although the advantage of the system is that the Qflash is dang powerful, and if you shoot outside and need to overpower the sun; it’ll do it. That being said, the brightest I ever got the flash was 1/4 power, and most of the day indoors it was at 1/8, 1/16, and 1/32 power, so I could have easily have used a Nikon SB-900 or SB-800 (ala: David Hobby).

    I shot in Manual mode all day, usually at 200 ISO, with a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, and I used a slow shutter speed to bring in the ambient room light in the background. Anyway, here are a few shots from that shoot (below).
