Re: I tried, it is hard!

Hey Maney,

You weren't using e-ttl metering were you? Try completely manual and play with shutter speed and flash intensity. You should find a combo that works. Also what type of sky/background were you shooting in? Bright day-time or evening/sunset?

I took my wife out on a shoot to replicate the first picture here
with the dark sky and well lighted subject. But was not able to do
it. Mosquitos were eating me up... With flash off, sky was
beatuful, but subject too dark, if flash on, then subject well
lighted but sky completely black...

If no mosquitos and more time, I would have tried more techniques,
but this gave me a hit of how hard it can be...

am on a missiong, am replicating most images on this forum to start
with then move on to other things....

Just got my umbrella, light stand and pcsync cord, 285, ready to go
out now... Just need a subject, and time to play...
