Freckles was my model today for some experiments in flash photography. She was an unwilling participant at times and was very poor at taking direction, but she is, after all, a cat. In the picture below, she didn’t want to sit at the end of the wall so that I could try different settings. Instead, she saw the flash gun lying a short ways away on the wall. It’s black and perhaps slightly to big to be prey, so she crept up on it slowly.
This photo was taken with a Sony NEX-7, 24mm Zeiss lens, and a Sony HVL-F58AM flash, triggered using a Phottix Odin. Exposure settings were ISO 100, f/4.0, 1/500 sec. I had set the Odin into HSS (high speed sync) mode.
