Another amazing shot. Do you mind if I ask how you set up the flash guns for these?

Hi Cristian,

For these shots I use a high shutter speed(1/6400s) so all the light needs to be supplied by flashes. I have 2 for the foreground (the bird) and two for the background. The flash is set in high sync mode to allow the higher shutter speed. One flash is the master and the other three are set up as wireless slaves.

There are a lot more misses than hits but it's great when it works and you can always delete the failures.

Geoff, thanks for sharing the details.

I can imagine that there would be a lot of missed shots, but these are really great and well worth the effort.
