That is over powering the sun. It was not night time.....it was pure daylight when that photo was taken.

If you want to overpower the daylight even more go find some shade and you can make the ambient purely black.

Also I'm not sure what style of photography the OP is going for.

I was trying something low key and moody/horror like not the typical boring fashion/glamour shot.

I'm going for glamor/fashion shots as well as conceptual images, which could be moody or macabre depending on the concept. I want to be able to cover a wide range of moods so whatever equipment I end up with needs to be versatile.

Here are the results from the first time I shot fashion shots using a $70 high powered speed lite and an umbrella.
