It took me awhile to find the dart but I found it. If your camera has rear curtain sync available for flash you my want to try it in this situation. Normally, the flash fires the instant the shutter opens. This causes the streak produced by available light to be in front of the moving object.

Rear curtain sync causes the flash to fire just before the shutter closes with the result that the streak is behind the moving object.

A different approach but one worth the effort.

Cal....once again, I learn something new here.



Took me awhile to find the dart, too, but a fun shot.

It's not easy to capture such an action.A bright room with a very fast shutter speed would be the ideal. Cal pointed out something very interesting. Such settingwould indeedmake the dart appear a lot clearer.
