I have a Canon kit – EOS 7e with a 420 EX flash. The flash was mounted on top of camera (usual position). I was a bit afraid that the lens would shadow the flash since my working distance was pretty limited, but that did not manifest.
I know this isn’t very useful, but I used the flash as a robo-flash and let the camera’s auto metering figure it all out. If I could, I probably would have thrown less light at the ice to reduce some of the reflections. Next time, I’ll try something like that.
I was mostly concerned with DOF and consequentially twiddled with the aperture setting and the DOF-preview.
