I used a new little device that I whipped up in the garage this afternoon. Its a SpeedLight on a Stick.

I hold the stick out with my left hand until I get the light where I want it, and then operate the camera one handed. This is a technique for either a very light setup or a small VR lens. IN this case, I used the 50mm 1.8 and removed the D200's grip.

Joshua, cool...that Strobist site is pretty awesome for sure...

You can also use things called "ball-bungees" to tie your flash to just about any stick...

True. I would think that a ball bungee might let it slide up and down. I feel very secure with this setup. It took all of about 5 mins to make this little thing. I could go further by making it in two pieces that screw together so that it will fit in a camera bag.

I have a Joby Gorilla Pod that I use to mount the flash other places too.

Hey, that is a good idea! Not that I use the flash a lot but it does give me ideas.

Wonderful shot of Mrs Trix...sharp where it matters.
