Photoflex Lighting School: High Speed Sync On-Location

For our newest lesson with Light Leader Jose Aguilo, we give up the control of the studio for a beautiful beach in Puerto Rico to explore the benefits of high-speed sync on-location. This technique enables us to sync with our flash using shutter speeds up to 1/8000 of a second. This allows us to freeze motion and work with a much shorter depth-of-field. Read all about it at the Photoflex Lighting School where we feature over 200 lessons on all types of lighting.

One of the main challenges of summer sunlight is that the sun is right overhead for most of the day, creating a too-bright light...
