    this was a total experimental shoot... the 16mm fisheye loose about 95% of its "fishyness" which i knew, but focusing the zenitar is always a bit odd. i also bought a hotshoe to hotshoe cable yesterday so i can use my promaster flash hand held off camera (or a bracket if i buy one of those) since it doesnt work in the camera's hotshoe, untill can afford to buy a 420ex or a sigma 500... but i took about a half dozen of these shots, this is the best one.

    i was about 4' from the curb, camera was mabye 1' off the ground. i had the neckstrap on and just let it fall between my legs as i was kneeling, fired it w/ my thumb on the shutter release. held my flash as far away from my body as i could w/ my left hand and at about my shoulder height, so maybe 2.5' off the ground and aimed it somewhat up

    this is the result

    exif info:

    Model : Canon EOS 10D
    ExposureTime : 1/15Sec
    FNumber : F0.0
    ISOSpeedRatings : 400
    DateTimeOriginal : 2003:09:11 19:37:54
    ShutterSpeedValue : 1/15Sec
    ApertureValue : F0.0
    ExposureBiasValue : EV0.0
    MeteringMode : Partial
    Flash : Unknown(9)
    FocalLength : 0.00(mm)

    note the f/number and focal length are 0 because its not an ef mount lens, there is an adapter to use this lens so u must shoot in full manual. i also shot rear curtain sync

    your seeing the reflection off my friend skating because i was hand holding the flash almost directly in front of him, off the camera, so it was throwing the shadow behind him on the curb
