I originally put this thread in the wrong place I think. I was reading and article in the January 2008 PCPhoto Magazine (by Bruce Dale). The title was "The Art Of Flash" on page 34 so I thought I'd try. My girlfriend and I went out for dinner last night and I recalled the article so I tried with her point and shoot (Olypus Stylus 790 SW). Next I went to the car and got my Nikon. I was amazed at how easy this technique was and how well the cameras (both) kept focus on the subject. Here's the one from my Nikon: Here's the one from Tracey's Olympus: Good fun. Try it out. I'd love to see others.
