Fantastic! How'd you light the first shot? What were the flashes power on? How long the exposure?

Thanks guys!
Shot one was 1423seconds, i fired my af540 twice on the left and once on the right(only once on the right because the right side was slighty already getting some light from a lamp post.

Second shot was 573 seconds (would have gone longer but there was a boat getting close with lights on. And i fired the flash twice inside the front section and twice in the back section.

Did you fire the flash off by pressing the "test" button or whatever (dont have my AF360 handy)? At what power?

Ah I see.

One more question... when was the flash shot. In the beginning middle or end of the shot?

Thanks! I appreciate it..... I've never had the opportunity to see how a flash would effect a long exposure so im very curious.

I did all flashes at the end of exposure.
I'll tell you what though, in the second shot when i was inside the hull and set off a total of 4 flash's i was blinded even with my eyes closed and getting out was not fun! LOL

Not of Tougefc's caliber, but here's one I was testing this with last week. I'd fire the shutter, and then have one kid pose while the other fired the flash on full. Move and repeat until I stopped exposing.

The funny thing is, I was out trying to shoot lightning that night, and didn't end up with one even remotely close.
