correct me if i am wrong - but for me its just another way of saying that i just matched the exposure of the subject to the background by using a flash

so i set my shutter aperture iso to get the clouds and then set my flash to properly expose my subject

im terrible at explaining things so ya haha hope that helps

in short, meter the background and flash your subject to make an even exposure both foreground and background.

ooopppss it's not short.

Key shifting is purposely underexposing the background then using a flash to properly exposing for the person or object in the foreground.

*slaps forehead*

Thanks guys...One more term for something I already do (or try to do), but didn't know what it was called.

Did a little 5D iii/strobe action tonight:

So here is a question, generally I avoid all points AF like the plague and normally use center or occasionally one of the side points so I don't have to focus and recompose.

My question though is for BIF or airshow shots, are there times when using all points and AI Servo might help it track if the subject gets outside of the center point or isn't perfectly centered when you start the AF? I figure that it would only work with blank sky and not if there is a lot of background mess it might want to try to lock on.

Has anyone else tried this? Or am I asking my 60D to behave like a 7D ;)

I tried it once it was terrible, ai servio and center focus works so much better. It's like using a sight on a gun.

Yeah that is what I typically do, just wasn't sure if there was another way to try.

I just want to share this with you. Look at this shot:

IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
HTTP response: 404 | MIME changed to 'text/html' | Byte size: ZERO


I took it two days ago. Just a random snapshot of a friend. Her face is out of focus, I did not publish the shot on Facebook for that. Until that..

She got involved in a car accident. They were four friends in the car, she was seated in the back. Driver was drunk. He was speeding, he lost control and hit a tree. The car broke in half, sending the front part 30 feets farther. Driver died on the spot. Co-pilot died on his way to the hospital. Third guy was in a critical situation but doctors have been able to keep him alive. He lost his two legs.

And than there is my friend. Kelly. She's the most lucky of the four. She got a fractured foot and leg and a nervous shock but she is still alive. She's on the operation table as of now, they are trying to repair her broken bones. We all hope she'll walk again.

Now look at the picture again.

It was taken the night before the accident. Look at her smile, how happy she was. I have now posted the shot on Facebook and eveyrone is in love with it, people are sharing the picture and the story. I'm not here to tell you don't drink and drive.

It's just that you never know when the last shot you took will be the best one since a while and for a while. Even if technicaly the shot isn't good. If I was following my workflow, that picture would have go to the garbage in a couple of weeks. If that accident would have happen in a year, I would be so mad I had deleted the shot.

Just keep your files, you never know when you'll need them. Or when they'll become famous shot of yours.

Hi, I'm David.
