Belly Dancer

Strobist: Speedlight through a Honl Traveller 8 softbox, clamped to the wall, camera right, blue-gelled speedlight atop a speaker cabinet, camera left, red-gelled speedlight clamped to a doorsill across the room, camera left and way back.

Yes, Virginia, you can light a small performance venue with 4 speedlights, all firing at less than full power. The lighting for this photo:

I've got a speedlight with a 1/4 CTO gel firing through a Honl Traveller 8 softbox, clamped to the wall, camera right and behind me. There's a second speedlight with a 1/4 CTO gel through a Lumiquest Softbox III next the one in the Traveller, but it's oriented to light the secondary dancer floor to the left of the stage, in front of the musicians.

I placed blue-gelled speedlight atop a speaker cabinet, camera left and behind the dancer.

Finally, there's a red-gelled speedlight clamped to a doorsill across the room, camera left and way back.

I tripped everything with my RF-602 radio triggers. Well, not everything. The batteries in one receiver died, and I forgot pack spares. So the red-gelled flash was working optical slave mode all night.
