    Dear members,

    Here a picture of a facebook friend (who gave me permission to post in this

    Here are the parameters : Old Olympus FL-50R flash in a 20x30softbox, probably about 6ft from the subject. Triggered by Pocket Wizard transciever.

    What I find very intesting is the low shutter speed : 1/40th second.

    Could someone explain how this portrait is so tack sharp without ghost with such a low SS !

    Yes. Even though the shutter speed was slow, the duration of the flash is very short, freezing any movement.

    Excellent shot. Nominated for POTM, August, 2017

    Pose, frame, background, lighting, focus, balance, all good.

    BANANAJACK; did you take that photograph? If not, you should take it down and post a link to it.

    Using a slow shutter speed with flash is called - Dragging the shutter.
