    These weren't taken one right after another. It is just a few of the results of about 800 pictures. I have probably 100-150 good useable images. These were untouched in photoshop other than to resize them for the web.

    Data:

    Nikon D70
    Sigma 105mm f/2.8 macro
    SB-600 -1.7
    Sto-Fen Omni Bounce
    RAW
    Manual mode
    1/250 sec
    f/14
    ISO200
    Remote
    LOTS of patience!

    No, the D70 is a digital SLR.

    The SB600 is the key. Freezes action... at how fast???

    Nice shots. I would pick one and blow it up to at least 16 by 20. See www.perfectposters.com

    amost any compatant slr should do.the action is frozen by the flash!the shutter speed is really not important as long as the flash fires off within the time the shutter is fully open.its not that hard in theroy.now in practice you need to be set up and taken enoughj shoots to capture the ones you want.this is were digital rules.you can shoot an infinite amout of images to capture the ones you want.tens of hundreds of images for free compared to film.
