Photographic Education

I made some notes on a great video by Chris Orwig on setting up your printer for printing through CS4.  The interface of CS4 is different from previous Photoshop versions and I was at a loss until I viewed this video.

highspeed_sync Canon Flash Jerry Schmidt

High Speed Flash Diagram from Canon Flash Work

Normal flash requires a synchronizing shutter speed or below.  In a synchronizing shutter speed, the first curtain travels to a fully open position, at this point the flash is triggered and extinguishes before the second curtain follows.  When a photograph is taken with a high shutter speed with a normal flash the result will be a partial picture.

Flash is possible with extremely high shutter speed with a setting on Canon Flash that is called – High Speed sync.  High speed sync modes actually are a very fast strobo cycle that paints the exposure as the narrow slit of the focal plane shutter curtain races across the sensor.

Here is an excellent resource for Canon Flash

I just order the new Pocket Wizard

Mini TT1 and Flex TT5: TTL Radio Triggers

These radio slaves will open up a world of radio controlled High Speed TTL flash in bright ambient lighting situations where the built in optical communication between flashes would be difficult.

I am thinking about a 580 flash mounted in a softbox used in full TTL – HS flash at 1/4000 sec at f/2.8.
