I just don't agree that for portrait photography speedlites don't have a place as me and plenty of other photographers use them as tools for shooting portraiture.

Here's a photo taken in broad day light where I overpowered the sun with a $70 flash.

Is that your idea of "overpowering the sun?" Are you kidding me?

And do you REALLY think this is the kind of photograph the Original Poster is "aspiring" to?

(I'd like to think the lady is aiming a good deal higher than that.)

I was maxed out on my shutter sync speed and aperture.
