Here's two shot with Nikon D70 and Tamron SP90 f/2.8. Pic #1 was 1:500 @ f/27 Pic #2 was 1:500 @ f/13 Both were shot in RAW at ISO 200, using the onboard flash (reduced at 1/2 power) to drive my SB-80DX hand-held... I have re-discovered the pleasure of being able to use a fast shutter-speed with the flash... it makes it so much easier to obtain a real BLACK background ! (BTW, i didn't even had to use a black material: i just shot them where they were, in the center of the living-room, with the nearest wall about 4 m. (12") behind them !) Hope you'll like them... Cheers, J-P.
