by popular request, how to control specular highlights...I think it's quite self explanatory.

    My question is how did you time 2 cameras to take the 2 shots at the same time? Is this a feature of CLS/i-TTL?

    Or am I missing that the speedlights in the photo are producing a constant light source (unlikely -- since I don't know how to make a Nikon flash do *that*)

    My only experience with remoting is with the infrared remote that mated with my D50. Now that I shoot mostly with a D700 and D2H (and so far, only with a hotshoe flash) I haven't looked into the more expensive and elaborate remote systems those cameras require.

    Any exposition on that?

    Thank you.

    Heh. The D2H has no speedlight on it. I used the built in on the D200 to trigger the speedlights via CLS; the D2H was just there for posing. :)

    how thick is that perspex?

  12. mingthein 40 months ago | reply

    About 5mm. Anything more and you can kiss your flash power goodbye.

    yep,i found in my local store 4mm thick white opaque pleksi(perspex),.I'll buy one big plate and give them to cut it .

    Should work fine so long as it isn't too opaque.
