I was using the CLS setup for protraits, like this .... D200 with built-in flash set for fill light, SB-800 into umbrellla for main, was working ok for the first few pictures, but a serious problem occurred.

This one individual in a small group kept having his syes closed, from blinking, in every picture I took. We tried everything, having a count, trying to fool him by shooting early in the count, by taking numerous photos, and each time his eyes were closed from blinking, even though I was sure he was trying to not blink.

Finally occurred to me that the CLS pre-flash was getting him, and the blink that followed was caught in the photos. I had to turn off the CLS stuff, re-set everything to manual etc. and proceed from there.

Has anyone else experienced this problem with a "fast blinker" like that. ? UNLESS there is a remedy or work-around, 'pretty much ruins the CLS system for group pictures and portraits, for my purposes.
