I'm guessing you can high speed sync between Canon and their flashes? Sync speeds are normally 1/180 and 1/200 with normal speedlights, and no where near fast enough to kill ambient. Plus, the location of the flash would have to bear within inches of the subject.

If you have an HSS capable flash, it will sync above X-sync when it's in the camera hot shoe.

If you have have triggers that support a variation on HSS, then the flash will sync above X-sync when used off camera.

Wrong terminology, Dragging the shutter means using a slower speed than called for which would pick up more ambient light in the background. ;)

Sorry about that, you're absolutely correct! I was partly right, but incorrectly used the "drag the shutter".

Partly right about what, increasing shutter speed? That increases ambient.

Second time I got to play around with my speedlight and umbrella, what do you guys think? It was used for a "Meet the Editor" segment I did (and still doing) for my school's paper.

Just a 43" Westcott Shootthu. I also used a silver reflector from the right to fill a little better.

Part of my 365 Project. (Yes it is all He-Man based. No I have no idea why :lol:)

White foam core in background, single flash pointed at it. Turned the figure to get shadows how I wanted them.

Valentine's Day dinner.

One Elinchrom D-Lite 2 it, with the included softbox. A reflector some ways away to camera right.

Took the same light, put it on the other side of the room and pointed it against the white wall. Surprisingly looks a lot like natural window light, but it's quite dark outside. Dragged the shutter just a little bit to get the candles.
