015: Card toss

I wanted to figure out the difference between the flash modes. Front-curtain sync is the usual flash mode; slow sync is front-curtain sync + slow shutter speeds to capture the subject and the background; rear-curtain sync fires the flash just before the shutter closes and slow rear-curtain fires the flash at the start and end of the shutter opening.

From memory this one is slow rear-curtain, it flashed the first cards on the table and then the last ones tosed on the pile.
