Details:    I’d just bought a Ys-120 strobe off ebay, which has a slave sensor built in, so i was hoping to do a couple of back lit off camera strobe shots. It proved difficult to get the strobe to trigger, and i hadn’t worked out mounting opetions for it yet, so very few shots were takedn with it. Instead i focussed on some baitfish balls.            

Camera Details: Tokina 10-17mm , dual SS200 strobes +ys-120 slave
