I just realized I hadn't yet posted this image taken earlier this summer in the Catskills (New York). I was aiming for a profile shot of a fisher that frequents the area, but I only got raccoons (as usual). Bears were in the area too but they left my camera alone for once.

Canon T3i using kit lens at 18mm, triggered by TRLcam PIR and two SB-28 flashes. Exposure: 1/100 @ f8, ISO 400. One speedlight directly behind the log at 1/4 power and zoomed to 50mm; second speedlight camera right 1/8 power, zoomed to 50mm and gridded. Both flashes had a strip of 1/4 CTO to slightly warm the light.

As an improvement I would have put a third fill flash camera left to fill in the dark side of the raccoon's face a little bit. Unfortunately I had to remove my set because it was on private property that was sold. I hope to have a new set up and running someplace else by next month.

It looks pretty cool the way it's backlit.
