My pal shredding the quarry near Penshaw.

Off camera SB-800 mounted on tripod to his right (our left!). Flash head zoomed to 85mm (IIRC), camera all manual. No diffusers - wanted the 'bare bulb' effect to add punch and grittiness.

Camera:Nikon D300 Check out Nikon Nation!
Lens:17-55mm, f2.8
Recording media:JPEG (digital)

Jim, I love the shot. The lighting is well controlled and the composition/action really works... but what the hell is going on with that border!

Cheers guys. Matt, I designed the border with you in mind. I call it Blue Sky Thinking.

You can buy the action on my site.
