Using fill flash outdoors (pic)
Dec 28, 2006

Using the D200 and a SB800 (SB600 will also work great) I tried something a little different. Using a cheap 60" umbrella mounted on a cheap stand I used the SB800 aimed into the umbrella (very portable setup). The camera was 10-12' away (60 degrees) with a Nikon 105mm VR on it. The mountain man wanted an outdoor portrait. This is one of a series. I was blown away by the sharpness of this lens at f11 - everywhere. A 2' x 3' print is scary sharp. (sharp lens+tripod+strobe). VR was off.
