I'm so dumb... I just learned that shutter speed doesn't impact flash

I'm so dumb... I just learned that shutter speed doesn't impact flash
Oct 7, 2010

I've been taking pictures for a few years now... I just learned this today! It makes sense, but never knew that.

I'm no pro, but last Friday I watched a pro photographer shoot a corporate event. I learned more by watching him for 30 minutes than by doing it wrong for the past year.

A few things I learned.

  1. 1 Use a light meeter - I've been guessing, shooting, tweaking, repeating, etc.

  1. 2 Use a target with a black, grey, and white point to help establish exposure, but also to help with levels/curves in post (easy for aperture).

My light meeter arrives tomorrow - I can't wait to play this weekend!
