I think if I were to do this setup, I would have used my Cactus V5's. I would have attached one to my camera and have it fire every time I shot. On my other camera, I would have the other plugged into my off camera (40d as well). This way, every time I took a photo with my main camera, the other would take at the same time.

THANKS BRYAN! I have been looking for something like this, that have worked perfectly for me. I will certainly pick one or two of those up, i could use it for my regular gig!

cpam.pix, here is a link of some of the photos. You can see towards the middle, 1 photo each of the communion from each side. Any suggestions or comments would be great. I will be removing the link to the photos sometime soon, if it is gone please message me and i can show you them, or i'll put up some shots without kids faces:

I was feeling creative and the first picture in the set is an image i photographed. I took the outside church shot, took the inside stained glass window shot and put them together, what do you guys think, you guys like this or should i not add this?

Things i could have done better:

- Take pictures as they walked up the stairs to get ready to enter the church to start off the event
- Better positioning when entering the church.
- Decide if getting the picture of each kid bowing at the front is worth getting
- Should have took more photos from the balcony looking down, maybe just have a remote camera there
- Maybe have the remote camera a little tighter, would love opinions on this
- Should have done a better job with the group portrait outside, should have told all the kids to look at me and should have walked up to the front and took about 4-6 "group shots as i moved down the line to get the kids more focused on me and the camera.

Any other suggestions or things i could have done better?

I'm doing this again tomorrow! Same venue, it will be interesting to see how i will handle this with 1 more year of experience, i'm a little nervous but not nearly as much as last year.

Starting to think about what i will be doing differently, thankfully i left myself some notes up there :-D

I will be shooting back to back communions so it's going to be a long day. I will be using my cactus v5 to trigger the other camera. Any final suggestions while viewing my photos from last year? These are for the church to give out to the family members i'm sure.

I'm looking back at the photos, this was one of my first events where i had to shoot groups, i'm hoping the group shots will be much better.

So, how did it go? You gave us a great lessons learned analysis last year. I'm looking forward to finding out what you learned this year.

70-200L, 28-70L, 24-105L, 300L, 50, 10-17 fish, 2.0x TC
Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!
