Question this message is importantHi Marco,

Great shot, seen it being used before and I have always wondered. Are you shooting natural light with these mirror images or with strobes?

Regards, Allen smile

message Hi Marco, thank you very much for your reply appreciated, now you have really tweaked my curiosity. I hope you don't mind the next 2 questions.... smile

How would shooting at 1/320 help you if Nikon's sync speed with external strobes and SLR is only 1/250? Would shooting at higher sync speeds not create "Shutter Shadow"(My term) in the bottom half of the picture? Would the light from the snoot not create a reflection in the mirror or are you shooting the strobes on low power....sorry, I am pretty ok with the wide angle stuff, but very new at Macro, the bug bit about a month ago to try Macro work.

message hi, i use a optical fibre cable with my flash inon, the camera work untin 1/320 with the builit flash, you must set from menu. i use two home made snoot that are no too little for the use that i hope, but for this shor are ok.
it is difficult to set the flashes, but the main trouble is to keep the scene clear from dust!

message Sorry for the late reply, I have been away. Thank you very much for the information, I am going to give it a try in 2 weeks time, will not however be able to get the sync speeds you get, can only go up to 200, so will reduce ISO and strobe power smile
