I got my D700 last week after a long layoff from photography and Nikon equipment.

I currently have a very, very, very steep learning curve!

I am currently down in the south of England on 2 day photography course. Today was glamour and tommorrow is fine art nude.

In reality the course is just jam packed full of lighting info.

We are working in a studio with a pro model and a maximum of 4 studio lights, each of us with an infra red trigger.

Most shots today were taken 125th sec at F8. I am using D700 with Nikon 24-70.

My problem is that the camera appears to be hunting for focus and not firing when I depress the shutter. However if I point the lens towards another area of the model it fires.

I have the manual with me, but so I can get this sorted before we do loads of subtle back ligthing tommorow. Can people point me in the right direction?
