The Wednesday Rundown 10.6.10

Hello everyone and welcome to the Wednesday Rundown. I have been playing around with my flash a bit this week and forgot about the sync speed for a second (just a split second). I know of the 1/250 sync speed and understand the basic idea,  but do you? We have a great video that goes into detail of how the camera and flash sync.  Also we have a video sent in by Julien from Canada, thanks again for the videos!

Flash Sync Speed:

If you are someone that doesn't understand the 1/250 sync speed this video is a must. Very detailed on how the camera and flash work together in timing.

Recreating the Sun:

These guys are crazy. I will never be able to say they have a boring video, check out how these photographers fake the sun in a photo with a speedlight.

Visual Body:

Check out this beautiful video sent in by one of you. Great final images, I have email Julien to see if he can give us some detail on how he got the final images. Hopefully we will see something in the comments sections.

Extreme Panning:

This guy has a pretty cool method for getting some extreme blurring. Nothing to new but might be good next time you are shooting an action scene.

Julien emailed me back with these comments on the shoot:

For the final images, there is no post production except the color. The blur is a long exposure (1.6 seconde). No light, just daylight and 2 Neutral Density filters. Lots of preparation and accessories, very good team too.
