Question for HSS users....Are you always using TTL? If not using TTL (using manual), how do know how to adjust you flash power? Does it just take a lot of practice to have a feel for what power to use at specific SS's? The main reason I don't use HSS is cause of the power loss with increased SS's. I can usually guess at what power setting I'll need with shooting manual and keeping under the max sync speed but I'm all over the place trying to dial in the right power setting when shooting HSS/manual And adjusting shutter speeds on the fly. Do I need to bust out the flash meter?
Thanks

I usually shoot with a deep octa and find that you do need quite a bit of power when shooting HSS mode. Like mentioned by other poster, HSS mode shutter speed affects both flash and ambient. I find AD600 not have enough power for mid day sun but that's wrong time to shoot anyways. What you can do is measure your lights to see how much power they loose as you cross over max sync speed and then as you increase your ss by 1 stop. That will make life easier later as then you know how much more power is needed from your strobe as you go from say 1/250 (your sync) to say 1/500 or 1/1000. On AD600 if I remember correctly, 1-1.5 stops loss on crossing sync speed and then just 1 stop as you increase ss by 1 stop. That last one you gain back as you open your aperture by 1 stop. But turning day into night or even over power ambient by using HSS, not doable unless you start with min 1200 ws IMHO.

Here are a few more outdoor portraits at 1/1000 shutter speed. Feel free to add any critique you see fit.

Awesome processing! (way cool brokeh!!!) Not really a criticism, just an observation on the last image. She has well defined cheeks, I wonder if you had lowered the light just a little bit if the shadows under her cheeks wouldn't be so pronounced?


Always be ready to give reason for your hope

Thank you! Yes, now that I remember, I had the light pretty high. I believe I had the setup for a group photo before her and didn't adjust the light. I might try dodging a little to see if that might help.

This was a test shot before team pics, but I like how it turned out... Flashpoint XPLOR camera left with just a silver 7" reflector as the wind was blowing 35+ mph and an octabox was not an option on this day, even inside the dugout

This was taken towards the end of a session as the sun was going down and decided to try some artisty with this shot. Does it work? Is it too much? Let me know your thoughts.

as this is for senior pics.. I'll mention you may want to darken the hand so the skin tone is closer to the face. But the ambient/flash balance is wonderful!

Thank you for the kind words. I hadn't noticed the hand as I was full focused on the face. I'll adjust that soon!
