Off Camera Flash with Rosco Gel Inserts

I got a shipment today from B&H with some lighting equipment, as well as Rosco Gel pack from Adorama. I expanded my lighting setup to include an additional Pocket Wizard Flex TT5 remote, in addition to 2 more Canon 430EXII Speedlights. I couldn't wait to try out the setup with a shoot-through white umbrella with off-camera flash in addition to some gel inserts to enhance the background color. Katie was going to be my model, but she fell asleep on the couch with Max, and here is the result:

I wasn't able to get the on-camera flash to work in conjuction with the 2 PocketWizard remotes, but there have been a few firmware updates, and they may be still working out the kinks. I'm really excited to see what type of creative shots I can get using off-camera flash, and will be looking for inspiration wherever I can find it. A few more pictures from this quick session can be seen at
