Hey, I love this photo. By chance do you use a strobe light. I have the same camera and just got a strobe light from Alien Bees for Christmas. I can't figure out how to connect the sync cord to my camera. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Michelle-I use floods---I am wanting an Alien Bee light, do they not work with the rebels???? That would be a bummer! I've been counting on getting one!

Hey there, I don't want to intrude on this thread, but wanted to respond to Michelle's question about the sync cord. I don't have a Rebel, but I bet you have somewhere to plug in the sync cord to your camera. If by chance you don't, Alien Bees sells a sync cord adapter that fits onto your hotshoe of your camera. I think it is about 14 bucks. I just got two Alien bees for Christmas and so far I'm having a great time with them.

Sorry Amy for intruding on your thread to comment on the question. You know I love this photo!!! :)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Thanks so much everyone! I am just a little surprised to see this here this morning! I think there was a mix up with my name and Janet's names, I am sure they will fix that.

Dolores--this backdrop is from Backdropoutlet.com--sometimes they run these specials where you pick a color, and thy grab whatever drops they have in that color group. Anyway, I have enjoyed it, I use it a lot.
