    Those were spur of the moment shots from this past winter. I want to do a few more this season when it's cold again, but a basic setup would include camera and strobe. You can use the on camera flash and I am sure it would work just fine. For the pictures on my site I used an off camera strobe fired by remote.

    Watch out for shadows, especailly if you are going to use the on camera flash. I forget which shot it is, but the shadow is cast over a portion of the board. Shadows can be cool, but not over what you are trying to show. Experiment and do what you think will work. Post up your results!!
