Hi everyone

Here's a sample of some of the shots I took at the Canada Cup in Mont Tremblant a couple of weekends ago:

Fantastic shots. What camera/lens/flash combo?

Hi Geoff,

Thanks for the comments..

I shoot with a D3s and a D800.. Some of the shots had 3 flashes. 2 Camera right, 1 camera left mounted into trees.. I started shooting TTL using Nikon's CLS but gave up and switched to remote triggers full manual. The pan shots are just flash mounted on camera. The pan shots are under exposed by 2 stops and the flash is pushed 3 stops. You need that extra flash power over ambient or else you get ghosting.

Didn't think you could do that with a single flash...

Maghalie Rochette looks awesome.

The pan shots are a single flash.. I'm fairly close and the flash was pretty well set to full power.

The shot of Rochette uses 3 flashes. There was a rock that the riders could either ride left of or right of. My thinking is they'd mostly go right. So I metered as if that's what they'd do. With the flashes that close it would either work out great if they went right, or they would get nuked if they went left. Rochette went right.. Most of the men went left which means completely blown highlights..

TTL was a complete failure for me too. I'll never shoot with TTL again. It works great indoors but outdoors it gets confused as to what it's metering off of. Very, very inconsistent results..
