Now that's the way a flash is supposed to be used! Great shot Boily!

Boily-

Was that photo taken with the Kodak P-20 Flash or the camera's built-in flash? It looks excellent, but there is no way to determine the flash distance to the subject.

Please give us a bit more info.

I will have to check back to find the answer to your qestion Sara;

It appears to me to have been taken usingat least two light sources, one obviously off camera and another likely to be off camer also.

Boily, Nice shot... I think after seeing these results I will take a stab at the same type setup. But first I will have to pickup a longer pc sync cord, seeing as how the one that came with my flash is only like 18" (give or take). I am about to put my car up for sale... Maybe I can take some cool shots like this for the ad on AutoTrader, butI will certainly post any good shots I get on here too.

I believe Boily did this with the flash setup he mentioned in another post. If so, he used two external flashes, one hooked up by a long PC sync cord attached to the P850 with a hotshoe-pc sync adapter, and the other being a slave flash.

It's quite an interesting set-up and, if this is the setup used, you can see more info on this thread:

Thanks a lot for answering the question inneyeseakay :-)

The forum wasn't working for me during 2 days !!

The setup was composed by2 flashs..One on each side of the car

The left one was on a tripod and theslave flashon the right side, wason the ground !!

Boily-

Did you notice the photoelectric sensor (the little white plastic bubble on the top of the flash)? this is a true slave. It does not require a cord to actuate.

I like slave flashes and always carry one with me all the time. They really are quite handy.
