I've had a short session yesterdaywhere I tested "for real" my new lens Canon50mm f1.8.

It is a faster lens than kit ones but I have to go down to f2.2 or 2.8 with ISO400 to obtain 1/60s or 1/80s shutter speed.

It was on purposemade with such contrast and good amount of saturationand I find it interesting.



Would apriciate your input very much.....

I like number one but would have tilted the head just a bit more to the right.

Aren't you using studio strobes ?

To tilt a little head...good point,I did not noticed before:(

Aren't you using studio strobes ?"

No, unfortunate I do not have any studio equipment (except the camera), everything is improvised by "handmade".

I heard about strobes and some "sync process" that is used to obtain faster shutter speed but never founded any simple exlanation how does it work and would be very appriciate if you could explain or give me some good link to find additional information because I was thinking of that long time even to invest money for this purpose.

I did bought Dynatech grey card as for your review and might say it is very helpfull...thanks for tip

Thanks in advance.....

Normally your studio strobes will freeze frame the action in speeds of arround 1/1000's or more (some cheaper brands will drop below 1/1000's).
The shutterspeed on the camera has a xsync speed, often 1/200's
Normally in the studio you use a shuttertime of arround 1/125's for photography this is fixed, because the flashes make the photo.

In other words you can shoot with 1/50's or 1/160's and still get the exact same exposure.

1/50's can be a problem when you have ambiant light in the studio.

Very Nice Zak , over all the lighting looks very nice for non studio lighting just like Ken and his Duct tape lights, who would ever known.

I understand the point and I'm still very interested in studio strobes and I think that could improve my work much more. That is why I need your comments over these:

1. Can I use External flash on camera shoe instead of studio strobes for same effect. I see external flash like Metz 54 MZ 4i as affordable for me or even Canon spidelite 430EX or 580EX

2. Do I need external flash to make that xcync (sinchronation) with strobes or better say to activate strobe in the moment of pushing shooting button on camera or there is other way

3. Is it enough one strobe with umbrella as "studio strobe" to use for a small room like 3x4 square meters.

Thanks Zak
