    Shot this a few weeks ago. I used a 4 light setup, all Vivitar 283's in this case. The background was a picture of the sky, printed slightly out of focus and is resting on an easel just behind the setup. Nikon D200, 200-400 VR ISO 250 manual mode, manual focus. ENJOY

    Thanks to all for your comments. The 283's are just all right in my book. I prefer to use the Nikon SB-26's instead. They will fire with no cords or slaves since they are built in.

    Such a great capture, I love how his head is just peeping out past his wing.
