"can't find the answer"


US
          

Hi friends, I know I asked this on here before, but for the life of me I can't find it. So here goes again...Here's my set up.
d90 aimed at my waterdish. one sb600 pointed at the dish, the other on the oposite side aimed at my background. The distance is probably 6" from the waterdish, and the other 6" from the background. That probably has nothing to do with my question, but that gives the setup. I have the camera at iso 200, f8, shutter 200 which syncs to my 2 flashes. One is in group a, the other group b. Using commander mode, the built in flash is -- and both groups are at 1/25 (either 25 or 28, can't remember). Okay, finally for my question, which forgive me, I know I asked before, can't find the answer, but need to know..
I can fire off probably a good 20 or so right off the bat. After that, maybe 5, then maybe 2. That's when it starts to get frustrating. That is when I start to finally see my waterdrops all coming steadily, click the remote (which is wired)and I get 2 shots, then I wait probably while a good 5 or 6 drops land, then I can get off another 2 shots. That makes for a looooonnnnnnggg afternoon. Why does that happen, and is there something I can do to make it not be that way. Any suggestions greatly, greatly appreciated. And "oh my", I used some coffee and milk today,,,OH MY ,,what beauties...thanks my friends.

Darlene
