Shutter speed?
Oct 15, 2007


I'm new in this Lighting forum and some of the concepts are not familiar to me.

I have tried to use fill light at outdoor to get face lit properly and ended to overexposed frames. I have figured that it is related to shutter speed which was about 1/2000 before I but the flash on and after that the camera (40D) set the speed to 1/250 which caused the background to overexpose.

So the question is how to use bigger aperture to achieve the blurred background and use the fill light from the flash?

Or is the only possibility to use reflector(s)?

And does these monoligths differ in this matter of hotshoe flashes?

thanks in advance.
