I like this shot. Typically, both eyes should be lit, but this is a perfect example of an exception.

Also, is he working on a shot-shoe sync cord?

yup, he cut a 1,5m long sync cable, and attached each ends on to a 5m long cable and it works perfectly!

I just recently did the same thing...I cut an 2' off-camera ETTL cord (generic version of canon's OC-E3) and extended it to 8'. I hate it. I like the extra length but my cable was too inconsistent. On one day, my flash would fire 95% of the time, which sucked but luckily I was only messing around with it. Then on another day, it would work 30% and I would get so frustrated. Its by no means acceptable and I would quit taking photos entirely on those days. I have already ordered Pocket Wizard's FlexTT5 and MiniTT1. I have the flex and I should receive the mini in a day or so.

Btw, when I looked at this photo, I was at work on my Droid. Now that I'm home on my pc, his right eye doesn't seem as dark. Very nice work

thanks. it's actually canons original 1.5m cord and then an everyday 5m cable in between so no worries there, fires 100% of the time. but bad copies have been known that can also flash when you focus your camera..
