I was carrying one camera and had a single flash, and was able to get some decent pics in quite a dark forest environment. Had no modifier to soften the light. These were all in manual mode, straight flash (yongnuo 560) fired off camera with a d700. The flash power varied, but around 1/8 power let me blend it well without being overbearing, however it was really dark where we were. (I was going to post this in the People forum but I thought you flash nerds would get a more of a kick out of it.)

I kind of wish I had a portable softbox with me but you got to use what you have with you. Thanks for perusing.:biggrin:

Well done. It must have been dark seeing the shadows in #2 and #3 and the way the action is frozen without ghosting.
