Becareful about curtain shadow at 1/320. In my experience, if a camera is rated for 1/250, you can sometimes get away with 1/320 (especially if it is on the hot shoe directly) but there is some shadowing. Take a picture of a blank wall @1/320 with no ambient light and see if one edge of the photo is slightly darker. Under normal conditions with ambient if you are only using flash to fill this may not be noticeable.

I did indoor roller derby once a week for about a month, trying to get as much shutter speed as possible. 1/320 worked. Slight shadow on the bottom edge.

Not sure if I posted the story on this photo shoot or not but I got to the location and forgot my batteries at home for my flashes. I thought what the heck and I will try some natural light. Turned out in the long run to be one of my favorite Senior shoots. I also posted this in the natural light thread.

I just got my first pair of glasses that I didn't think I needed. I apologize to anybody in the past year that I said their pictures were out of focus lol.

I'm looking for a mentoring program in the KY/TN area. Do any of you know someone in this area who does this?

Its a great shot, but it does look like she has a hand for a hair clip. If you could see an elbow or something or part of her arm you would realize its hers.

Mike, I thought back when you were in school they had to use a hammer and chisel for your pictures LOL.

These two seem to have a green cast to them, at least when I look on my calibrated screen.

+1. Yes, you can see her arm reflected in the window but you can also safely assume it's her hand - doesn't make it any better.

I like the shot except for the ghost hand.
