comment How to explain to your client that a camera flash does no harm to infant?
@Caleb - that's what I said - you SHOW them you respect their concern, you make a big show out of it, you tell them you are doing all those things to protect the baby that you would have done anyway to get a better picture - you do NOT try to convince them using rational arguments and evidence, you do not argue with them -- you make them feel you are going out of your way to address their concerns (while doing the exact same thing you would have done anyway)

@Caleb - also, if you think people (parents or otherwise) are rational you should really pick up one of Dan Ariely's books. people are irrational period, telling this to their face is insulting but expecting them to act rationally is counterproductive.

comment How to explain to your client that a camera flash does no harm to infant?
@Caleb - 1. why are you firing a 600EX-RT/SB800 from arms length in a baby photograph? are you trying to overpower the sun? what I meant is that you use bounce/softbox/other diffuser anyway so you can point to it as a "protection device" to make the parents feel safer and 2. generally speaking parents of small babies are sleep-deprived, overly protective and extremely irrational (trust me, I have 3 kids, I've been there)

comment Does Canon 450D (Rebel XSi) have TTL ratio control over the menu?
@MichaelClark the YN-468 does not have wireless ETTL support, it's only ETTL on the hot shoe, they do have the YN-565EX that's around $110 on ebay and does work with wireless optical ETTL -- I have the older YN-465 and I found it to be very good but in a you-get-what-you-pay-for kind of way, so, you can get a wireless ETTL setup for cheap with the YN-565EX but don't expect it to be as good as a 430EX/580EX based setup - and you still can't control it from a 450D without an external flash commander module (YN also makes those, you can get one for a little more than $100)

comment Does Canon 450D (Rebel XSi) have TTL ratio control over the menu?
@MichaelClark - it's pretty obvious I have offended you with my "this is basically not relevant for you" remark - I really didn't mean to be offensive, I myself don't have the budget for the nice Canon flashes I want so I got cheap Chinese units instead - and that means that some features I would like but are not must-have went into the "not relevant for me" category. the asker uses a 450D, this is a 5 year old entry level model and that implies the asker is, like me, also on a limited budget and so also has things that go into the "not relevant for me" pile.

comment Why hasn't buying powerful lights improved my lightbox images?
@Unapiedra - It's all about power, normal continues lights just aren't powerful enough - you need to get the background to be about 8 times (approx 3 stops, depending on camera) brighter than the subject - you just can't get that power without a flash.
