Flashlight Lit Pool Game

This photo was lit using a flashlight and walking around the table holding the flashlight at head height. I first was using two flashes (430ex & 580ex) to throw light around the table, but it was much too harsh. This is the point when I remembered that there were some Strobists a while back doing the same thing with flashlights. I didn't even hesitate--stumbled over my lightstand to the toolbox and grabbed the flashlight;).

 

Settings:

Canon EOS 40D, 17-40mm, 25 second exposure at f/14, ISO200.

 

I learn to light at Strobist.
