I’ve been using the Canon Speedlite 600EX II-RT flash units to light environmental portraits and certain events. It’s been challenging as much as it has been fun in learning about so many different ways to use them. Since they’re wireless there are no cords to run or possibly trip over. The radio frequency enables the units to be placed behind objects throughout a scene. The lead image below was an assignment to feature the 50th anniversary of a local skate rink for a special section. A 600EX II-RT is mounted on it’s mini stand placed on top of an old video game machine pointed to an opening where skaters hop on or off the rink as a key light. Another one is placed to the right of the skaters to act as fill light.
