water splash - fail
Apr 8, 2013

Hi,

I wanted to freeze the water splashing but the result is not what I wanted

I set the camera to the highest sync speed (1/180), as I noticed that with slower shutter speed the shot was even more blurred. Medium aperture f/6.3 to get people in focus and increased the ISO high to get some ambient light.The flash was off camera and behind a white shoot thru umbrella, about 1/4 power.

Maybe using direct flash would have frozen better the water? but I didn't want to have harsh light on the people
