Life Through a Lens 2

Strobist:
off camera SB-800 camera front left, triggered using CLS, on camera flash turned to -- and trigger flash bounced back to avoid extra lens flares.
Sigma 50-150mm @F/2.8

    Nice concept and its realization. Very well done. Perfect background and DOF with detail were they should be - on the main subject. I agree with sugested croping :)

    The technicality is superb. But it wouldn't hurt if you zoom in a bit more.

    Mike: CLS is Nikon's "Creative Lighting System" - like cannons wireless eTTL - triggering the off-camera flash using the built-in one.

    thats sweet, canon def does not have that. You have to have the 580 or equivalent to be a master.

    I dunno why but I am trying this with my Nikkor 50mm 1.8G off-camera and Nikkor 70-300mm on-camera and not able to get this at all :(... Any ideas if I am doing anything incorrectly...
