This last weekend, Nikon representatives were in town to do some employee training. They brought with them tons of goodies (camera bodies and lens) for us to use for the day. A special thanks to Paul and Bill for coming and setting up several shooting stations. I took this picture using a D300s, 105mm macro, and a SB600 flash. A fish tank was filled with water, the flash set at one end of the tank, the camera/lens was set on a tripod and I just had to drop the strawberry and take the picture. Honestly, not as easy as it sounds. The D300s was in commander mode to remotely trigger the SB600 off camera. The timing had to be just right. This shot is one of my better ones. Slight level adjustments and cropping have been done to enhance the picture. Thanks again Paul, Bill and Nikon, your AWESOME! I think David needs a D300s!
