Flash, Part 3

Here's something else you can try sometime with your flash. When shooting action, slow your shutter speed
down enough to get some blur in your subject, but shoot with your flash. You get the movement of your subject, but the duration of the flash is so short that it will freeze part of the image. Can be really cool.

Remember that two things determine exposure when shooting with a flash. Distance from the flash to your subject and lens aperture. Shutter speed does not directly relate to your exposure by the flash, but relates to the ambient light. You can slow down your shutter speed and make your photo look more natural, or go up on the shutter speed to darken the background for a more dramatic look.
