Time to youtube slow flash sync and see what this is?

On a side note I was shooting the other day mid afternoon with good sunshine and wanted to decrease the ambient light to get more of a pop out of the scene. So I dropped my shutter speed fairly low and used flash to expose for my model/friend. I was concerned that I would get motion blur but the flash seemed to stop motion and the picture of the subject came out very clear with no blur. Is this an effect of using flash? If i was shooting without flash im pretty sure I would have had motion blur.

Guess I should have been clearer, my post was strictly in relation to the situation where you want to have a longer shutter speed. I see no point in going to manual and "get that shutter speed right down and your aperture up f8" when Av mode will do exactly that automatically.

Av is great in that situation since, as long as you stay within the power range of the flash, it will manage the ambient while matching the flash output at the same time. The use of EC will allow you to control the brightness of the ambient, with FEC controling the flash exposure. Of course you still have to pay attention to what you are doing, checking that the settings are within your requirements.

I agree that when you want to fix the shutter speed to control subject movement, then going manual will be better. Go with the best aperture for the required DoF and use the flash as the main light source if you are using ETTL flashes. At that point I would just use my manual studio strobes, and control everything manually.

NP. All good conversations.
