i've got a 580ex and 430ex speelites.
i've been using both flashes on 160shutter speed, etc.
then stringing all the shots together in photoshop.


i've read about the stroboscopic flash setting.
in the 580ex manual,

"With stroboscopic flash, a rapid series of flashes is fired. It can be used to capture multiple images of a moving subject in a single photograph for later study."

my question is instead of screwing around with photoshop, should one skate shot come out fine with multiple images of a skater with that one shot??

or am i still stuck with the time consuming way with layers??
like this.

Basically, it depends on how you choose to light the subject and environment. If the background directly behind the action is anything other than pure black, then your subject will begin to appear see-through as light from the background burns into the exposure. If you can set up a shot with good subject-background separation and minimal ambient light, and also prevent your flashes from spilling light onto the background throughout the duration of the exposure (might be easier said than done), then it should work. Give it a try and see what you can manage.
