57. High speed sync location lighting Karl goes for a dark and mysterious forest fashion shot, utilizing the advantages of high-speed sync providing the capability to cut out ambient light even at maximum aperture for creative effect. Comments June 29, 2017 Log in to Reply wayne lewis Hi Karl My camera only goes to 4000th sec can i do 2.8 and 4000th to achieve the same June 29, 2017 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Wayne, yes absolutely even 2000th would work for this type of shot as long as your daylight isn’t too bright. If it is you can always add an ND filter on the lens. September 6, 2017 Log in to Reply Daryl Granger Hello Karl. I have the Nikon D810 I do not have Broncolour but rather Aurora studio speed lights. Do I need hs radio triggers, Currently I have Pocket wizards 2 plus. I just need a little direction. I am enjoying your videos. Thanks Daryl September 14, 2017 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Daryl, I’m afraid i’m not up to speed with all the different brands and what they have to offer. I thought some of the pocket wizards had a HS mode but it will also depend on the flash unit too, you best consult the manuals i’m afraid. September 7, 2017 Log in to Reply TP Hi @karl how could you achieve the shot with high speed sync and motion subject ? As I knew that high speed sync doesn’t free the motion right ? September 14, 2017 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi TP, I don’t quite understand the question? HSS can freeze well if at very high shutter speeds or high speed flash (short duration) can freeze too?

February 6, 2018 Log in to Reply Peter Scully Hi Karl, Love these motion shots. Due to the nature of this technique, is it professionally acceptable if the face and eyes are not quite as tack sharp as a still portrait (though I must say, your movement photos look bang-on every time)? February 7, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Peter, as many of these the model is some distance away or it’s on a wider angle lens it’s actually easier to get them sharp than on a close up portrait. For example at these distances on a full length figure then if the models body is in focus then the face and eyes will be too as long as the flash is also freezing the movement.

Could you tell me, please, if you used continuous focusing or you pre-focused (having in mind the spot in which you were planning to fire) for the shots where Debra ran? By the way, the effort of the entire crew and especially Debra’s is to be appreciated. Thank you. February 23, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Bogdan, I prefocused. That’s my usual technique for these type of shots as you will also see in ‘Fashionscape’ and some of the other fashion modules.
