I'm late to the party but this image on that post looks like it could have been from a professional CGI advertisement. Well done!

Only if you are moving the flash further from the subject. If you leave the flash in the same spot for the close shot and far shot, the same settings should yield the same results.

Based off your sample shots, your flash did NOT fire in that full car shot. If it did, the rear of the hatch would be lit the same and then the other portions of the car fall off into 'low-light' from the ambient.

yea your flash either didn't fire...or it did but your getting a delay at that working distance so your sync is off. Your limitation appears to be your radio triggers not the focal length of the 70-200.

Thank you both for your replies. I have been unable to test them since as its been snowing too much.

I am certain they were firing, so I would have to agree with O3DigitalBath that the sync must be off at that distance. At least now I know that it should work ( with better triggers ) so thanks for clearing that up for me.

Looks like I might have to buy some more triggers :(

My latest attempt, tried to use as much natural light as possible. Had 2 x Nikon SB28s angled at each wheel on full power circled in red (to try and overpower the sun - just) and 1 more mounted high at the left of the car to light up the front.

The other thing to remember about radio triggers is if the batteries are starting to go flat, the distance you can use them at diminishes.

I have since tested my triggers indoors, changed batteries, changed channels, different connections and they are not working properly at all, I think the transmitter has broke. Gonna buy some better ones

If you're struggling for cash stick to the Cactus V5 or Yongnuo units otherwise you can splash out on a set of Pocket Wizards.

Personally I haven't seen any need to use anything beyond the V5 as long as I take a spare set of batteries.
