Re: Toddlers moving quickly on sunny/high-contrast days

I did a shoot like that recently with two year old twins running all around the park and on the grass. I shot with one off camera flash with a pocketwizard setup, and I exposed for the background. My wife acted as my assistant, and I just asked her to keep the kid (or kids) between me and the flash (like a triangle)...and I crossed a my fingers. I provided about 60 final images out of around 125 shots. Here are 14 of them on my facebook page..... a small sample.

Your saving grace will be if you are sure to shoot in RAW and give yourself plenty of DOF! That will give you some nice wiggle room.
