The following are a few shots that I took last weekend.

We have a “Friends Pod” of about a half-dozen people that we do (unmasked) things with. One of the “things” is LARPing and camping. These were all shot at our friend’s new LARP-site in the Pennsylvania Poconos.

Most of the day I was shooting with High-Speed Sync fill-flash. I explained how HS-Sync worked a while ago, but I’ll tell-ya, this is the ONLY way to take outdoor portraits.

1- Use Av at the widest setting, and a relatively low ISO.

2- Underexpose the ambient light to -1ev or -1.3ev.

3- Use ETTL and set the flash exposure to 0ev.

4- Use High-Speed Sync setting on the flash unit.

My camera sync-speed – the fastest shutter I can use with normal-flash – is 1/200 sec. Using HS-Sync, however, I was shooting at 1/800 sec or faster, which was forced by the wide-open aperture even at ISO-200.

By the way, I’m married to the woods-elf.
