New Lights

So a retired photographer read about my show and wanted to give me some equipment. I ended up getting some ancient light stands, background paper, and strobes. I decided to start playing with them today trying to set up different situations and get used to how they work. I grabbed a box of my dad's african masks and made a little set up. I think they came out pretty good. I didn't experiment with the lights as much I should have though. Once I found a good set up I just kept it at that. I need to find someone to sit in front of my camera for a few hours so I can try all different set ups with the two strobes I got. They both have giant beauty dishes on them, I really wish I had a big soft box or octabank for them.
