I've played with angles, built custom stands to hold specific cross over patterns. This set up generates the least editing of all my other iterations. I overthink this stuff big-time. I'll spare u the details.

 

Try the sheets of white foam core between the BG strobes and the subject. Something like this:

well sure. my point was that there are workarounds.

 

so if you're trying to achieve a wider aperture and your max shutter speed is in the way, you can for instance use a polarizer. etc etc.

With strobes in order to use a larger aperture simplest thing is to lower ISO or reduce strobe power. Shutter speed is not really a factor in exposure with strobes if ambient light is minimal.

yes and yes. don't need over the 1/160 I am shooting. Iso at 100, etc no problem. I was just surprised so made the comment.

If buyer has a history of leaving mostly negative feedback, ebay can side with you.

Hello Gents,

 

I have a bit of a problem buyer.  The item isn't clothing related but I hope you will give me some wisdom anyway.  I'm selling a piece of audio gear (UAD-2 Satellite powered plug in's DSP accelerator). This person asked many times which plug in's were included and I answered that they are all listed in the ebay listing.  He wanted me send him more plug ins on a dvd to which I replied no, since UAD platform requires paid authorizations and it's not even possible to just put them on a dvd).

 

He then sent a best offer, to which I accepted.  Now he is asking the same two questions in addition to other questions and I am quite frankly becoming suspicious.  What are my options as a seller if I do not want to sell to this guy?  He has not paid for the item yet.

 

Awaiting your response.  Thanks in advance!

Can`t you just cancel the sale?

As in "cancel order"?  Yes, it is definitely an option, along with "relist".  I just wasn't sure if doing so would be frowned upon by Ebay.

Canceling a sale without the buyer's consent would earn you a defect.

You can cancel the order, but (as far as I know....it's been a while), you send a cancellation request to the buyer and they have to agree to it. I'd shoot the buyer a message, explaining that you are unable to do what he wants. Then give him the option of either going through with the purchase as is or agreeing to a cancellation.

Thanks for the quick responses.  I will do what you suggested.  This is the first time I've dealt with this kind of issue.  Why can't all buyers be like the gents of SF?? :)

The buyer wants me to ship to India.  His location on his ebay profile says New Jersey.  Is this a red flag?
