When using an umbrella, bring it as close to the subject as possible without being in frame. Light falls off real fast within the first couple of feet, as well as the umbrella soaking up a stop or two.


Try increasing your shutter speed to something other than 1/50, cause that seems slow, especially shooting at 75mm. Not for subject purposes, but for for ambient light.

are you saying he needs more ambient light in his shots or less?

I'm curious if you (OP) shot through the umbrella or did you reflect the light from the inside of the umbrella?

didn't think shutter speed really mattered considreing the flash would freeze the subject from any movement anyway. yea the umbrella was pretty close to her.

the flash was pointed away from the subject

Repeat after Me (or Zack Arias):
Aperture Controls the Flash
Shutter Speed Controls the Ambient

Yes, you can freeze your subject with flash. But if your exposure is set to a quarter of a second in midday light, you're definitely going to get blur. This also applies to 1/50th at 75mm if you're not careful.
