I have D300 camera, R1C1 kit including SU-800 and two SB-R200 speedlights mounted on a 60mm AF Micro Nikkor lens. I have NO experience with flash photography (I'm an ambient-light sports shooter).

I need to photograph lab mice and rats, close up. The room lighting in our Biobubble is bad and I need reproducible lighting for publication and presentations.

I've set the commander to TTL, close-up.
Camera settings:
A mode, f/5
Single-point AF
Single-servo AF
Spot metering

What other settings should I use in the camera? ISO? Minimum shutter speed? Etc.

Thanks.
Dave
