    Hey guys,

    I tried using a continuos light source with flash but got nothing out of it except a bulb with no light radiating from it.

    I would like to achieve something like this : http://www.flickr.com/photos/blackaperture...in/photostream/

    If anyone can give me some advice on this I would really appreciate it!

    I am using a Canon Rebel XT and do not have a handheld flash meter.

    Thanks,
    Lizette

    They are mutually exclusive and opposites really. How can a continuous light source be a flash? Either it flashes or it's continuous. Even in a studio the modelling lights are only for the purpose of previewing and the flash is what does the exposure.

    In other words, what the heck are you talking about?
