It's a damn pitty the Canon brand flashes don't support 2nd curtain remote sync - is this 1st or 2nd curtain (using your Yn triggers)?
And that is my point in all these first and second curtain comments, 99% of the time you can't tell which was used so how important a feature is it really?
I'd love somebody to actually post some images they took that illustrate how first curtain sync ruined their shot.
I actually have some shots that have this kind of shadow a moving object leaves when you drag the shutter with flashes. But for events like that where the DJ is jumping around I want to flash when the DJ "does his moves" and I only can consistently freeze those moments when I use 1st curtain. With 2nd curtain it's hit or miss because the flash goes off a second later than the shutter.
Hoooray! You're the first one to mistake me for an non-German, ever, after reading my English :-p ... actually I'm also German, Berlin to be specific, so I had a good look at the club scene for the last decade... but before my photography days, so sadly I never came around to try what you did.
Well, congrats for getting me to think you're a native speaker. I'm from Hessen, 80 kilometers from Frankfurt. The U60 was my go-to club for a long time.
But yeah, pretty much what you said:
For his setup, 1st curtain probably is even better because he freezes what he sees when he triggers the shot
