    On a serious note, how do you capture these images at only 250 Shutter speed without any blur?

  10. Quick question, do you manually pre-focus roughly where the dude will be jumping and then shoot with a smaller aperture to make sure the subject is in focus?

    If not, how do you get the focus spot on?
    What kind of aperture did you select to ensure the subject was in focus?

    THANKS :)

  11. Nick,

    Great question. Andy and I would guess about where our subject would be and use a hand, body or the softbox to lock the focus (you know...the little lock focus button on the back of the camera). Aperture did really matter for focus...the aperture controls flash power to insure proper exposure of the subject. Does that make sense?

  12. Hi Mikey,

    Thanks for the response. Yes I think it does answer the question, although I'm keen to know what kind of aperture you would shoot. I guess it's tricky because you might want a wide enough aperture to get some nice bokeh, but then you have a shallow depth of field to deal with. Also, shooting with a smaller aperture means your flash will have to work a little harder, so slower recycle times on the flash, and less battery life as well I suppose.

    I think I'm right anyway :)

    Keep up the good work guys. Loving this blog, and looking forward to the rest of 2010! :)

  13. Sorry to post again, but I'm thinking that in many cases around F5.6-F8 would give enough depth of field to keep things in focus, but also to throw the background out of focus and not be overworking your flash units.

    I'm fairly new to this so correct me if I am talking rubbish :)

  16. I have to pitch this in..

    Aperture does control depth of field but not entirely by itself..you have to keep in mind the focal length of your lens AND how far away you are from you subject! :)
