Hi Ron,

Shooting with the flash really seems to be working well for you. The shots are lovely and sharp, well exposed and you have good timing.

Don't forget to correct the angle of your shots as the first two are out a little but even so nice series!

Ron,

Great work!

What setup were you using (lens, flash, EXIF)?

Did you use a bracket?

These are very well done!!!

All shot with onboard flash as my sb800 is still in for repairs.

Lens is 70-300G 4-5.6 Nikkor

WB Flash



Tough using the onboard flash because you cannot shoot burts at all.

Ron,

Sweet shots man! I've been using the D200 & 85 1.8 with not that great results with on-board flash. I do have a SB-600 though. :?

Any help appreciated getting off burst shots with my current setup. (Including settings if possible)

Thanks!

Nick

Great Shots,

A little hint for you.
Invest in a Bogan / Manfrotto 233B (3429) Telescoping Camera/Flash Bracket and a Nikon SC-29 TTL Off-Camera Shoe Cord with AF Assist.
Set the flash directly over the lens. The additional height will cause the shadows to fall directly behind the subjects thus disappearing in the photosIE No Shadows.
That what I have been doing in most of the High School games that I have been having to cover.

Paul - I'm intrigued by this bracket. The bracket I have is a standard flip style bracket so it doesn't really provide enough separation from the camera. I took a look on B&H and I have a question - does this bracket have some ability to place the flash above the camera when the camera is in Portrait orientation? Since 90% of my shots are in that orientation I would want a bracket that allows for the flash to be over the camera in that orientation. Any insight?

John I was just doing the same and on http://www.manfrotto.com/Jahia/site/...fonce/pid/2808it shows that the joint can be adjusted to any angle. I might have to get one of these bad boys!!
