Camera School – Sync Flash

Posted by on Feb 15, 2014 in Camera School, Photography | One Comment

Didn’t like this module one little bit !!

I agree its a good technique to master but not sure when I will ever really use, and not something that particularly interests me. Of course it would have been easy just to dip out for a month but that’s not me … so with a huff and a sulk I checked out the brief. The aim was to capture movement using a slow shutter speed of half a second and the on camera flash. Given the recent bad weather and the approaching deadline I opted for an indoor shot using my solar powered smiley flower.

I set the camera up on a tripod and took around 12 shots before I was happy that one captured the movement I needed. I say “happy” in the loosest of terms because the shot itself doesn’t really do anything for me. Be interested to see what the judges have to say.

    Somewhat amazed that the judges decided this was worthy of a Gold. I guess technically it was what they were looking for as I followed the brief to the letter. As an image it still just doesnt do it for me !!
