So I watched this video as I am completely new to off camera flash work. I still am not understanding how you are able to underexpose the background while still keeping the model exposed correctly. I just can't seem to wrap my head around it for some reason. Can someone shed some light on this for me? (no pun) :D.

Thanks,

-Dave

The amount of ambient light allowed into the camera's sensor is controlled by your shutter speed...slower=more light....faster=less light

Well I understand that part, the part that I can't comprehend is how that doesn't effect the exposure for the subject as well. Is it because the power of the lighting source for the subject is constant regardless of what the shutter speed is set to?

Yes, the flash output is NOT time dependent, the background is.

This is a great tutorial, I would love to see a companion video for groups.

Stan, Thanks so much for all your efforts, I've watched it 3 times. It helped me understand off camera flash in layman's terms, in fact, I've saved it for future reference.
