Gotta agree with you Dom but trying to get any decent reach with a flash and the 70-200 at nearly 200mm is gonna be difficult. I've done both and have been upgrading flashes and remotes to try and get better night stuff.a little higher aperture, low iso, and a flash will net better results nearly every time
Better bring your A game if you are talking about Sikeston, I can tell you shooting after dark is a BEAR. Just not much to work with light wise. Be nice to meet you finally.Remote flash solves that and is awesome. Ill be breaking mine out this weekend for a race and going to try 2 580s on the line to light the car

2 580's will be more than enough.. I use 285HV's and they are not on full power at night and plenty of light.yeah ill be shooting at sikeston, hopefully i can get some useable shots. 2 580s should be enough light to get one lane lit up. i was told it was a bit dark, so ill have to pick my poison and choose one side to set up shop in. Still pretty new to shooting with a flash, even though ive had it over a year and a half, i just dont have the time invested in it right now let alone two flashes. But i wont learn unless i try so I figure this is a good time to try it out.
Lonnie I don't like to shoot cars from the front wider than 5.6 because of depth of field.. if shooting a car from the front wide open, the distance between the front of the car and driver is plenty far enough to make their faces not sharp.
More recently have been trying to refine photo quality and try out different things.. you know me always trying stuff to learn and improve.Do you mean you do not like to shoot cars under 5.6?

If I want more than the front end to be sharp, I try not to. A lot of time obviously if there's no light available... I do what I have to do.
food for thought
Ok thats what I thought, yeah I agree, when I first started, before remote flash, I always shot at F2.8 with on camera flash. Cause I would have the Flash at 1/8 - 1/2 power to be able to get some extra shots before the flash had to recycle encase something happen like a big wheel stand or something. But started learning that I was sacrificing quality (imop about my stuff) So started shooting with more power on the flash and higher F-stop and lower ISO.
Then I was shown remote flash and the whole game changed. lol
