I'm looking to get some ideas/tips.
shutter controls your ambient light, aperture controls your flash. Leave the flash in manual if its off the camera, leave it in TTL if its on the camera... and if its on the camera, don't do direct. Try to bounce it off something.
Yeah I know all of that.
then just practice... you know what you need to know.
Pretty much - gotta get the wifey down to the beach It's only seriously a mile away.
All I can say is that for stuff at sunset I think a gelled flash works best. Bright white light mixed with the traditional warm colors of sunsets looks bad.
Having said that, I've never done it because I've never been in the situation to do it. I have shots with fill flash at the beach, but none near sunset.
how fast can your Z06 do a standing mile?
What color gel would you use for the sunset?
Never tried the Z06 is in the garage I got a new DD.
I'm also interested.
I'd just "gel" it later in PS
I use a 1/2 or full cto in a white shoot thru.
Meh...like everyone says...used CTO, these were all without.
vivitar 285hv, hand-held, camera left, through lumiquest softbox
580ex master and 3 430ex slaves
details on this one?
I dunno if you'd consider this fill flash. Shot this with 2 580EXs. One was on-cam fired straight on, set on master to set off through IR the other 580EX set to slave, handheld by my buddy camera left pointed straight at the subject. No flash modifiers used.
Can I get some Exif data on the shots above. My limitation is a 1/320 shutter
What flash are you using? Whats causing that limit? AutoFP with off camera flash using cls will get you a flash at pretty much any speed.
I finally feel dumb not knowing an acronym.
Color Temperature Orange just shifts the color balance of your flash to a "warmer" light.
its nothing, just lighting shorthand for standard gel colors.
CTO for color temp orange, and CTB for blue.
The come in all sorts of strengths, but usually you use full, 1/2, 1/4.
CTO to warm, CTB for blue.
If you look at gel books, there's thousands of gels, and lots of variations of orange.
CTO is simply a particular level of orange, i.e. calibrated, so you know how much warm you're adding
this model and shot looks great.
Auto FP - I thought was limited to 320?
