    Here are a few shots from my first attempt at off-camera flash/action photography. Wow, it is really tricky and is going to take a lot of practice (and potentially new gear) to get good at! But, that's what I love about photography, there are unlimited paths and challenges to explore!

    FE 24-70mm f/4 ZA

    Yeah, it's a sweet new riding area in Oregon -- opening day, in fact!
    As for shutter speed, the first 3 shots were at 1/320 sec, and the last was 1/800 sec. BTW, if you click on the photo it will take you to the Flickr page with all the EXIF data for the photo.

    Yeah, just using the built in receiver on the flash and triggering it with the HVL-F20AM mounted on the camera. The only problem with this setup is that it it only fires with line-of-sight. I just ordered the Phottix Odin™ TTL Flash Trigger, which I'm really looking forward to trying out.
