A newspaper where I used to work, is doing a story on astronomy as a hobby, and they have been taking photographs at two astronomy clubs. One of them is our club. So we agreed at the last minute today to have four of our members show up with telescopes to do a portrait. I wasn't sure what kind of lighting the photographer would have, so I brought a 400 WS battery powered electronic flash unit and a big light bank, which makes for nice, soft lighting. I set up this portrait and then used my strobe light to illuminate the scene. I took this photograph before the reporter and photographer showed up. You can't do a portrait like this with a little hand-held flash unit. I can use this image for our website.
