Thread: what flash setting?

    Default what flash setting?

    hi all,

    From your experience, what should be the angle of tilt for my flash with omni bounce when using film camera? location is high ceiling with spot lights.. aka motorshow. i tried 1 roll of film, angle 90 degree straight ahead, model exposure is right, but the cars and background is dark... how to solve?

    Probably slow sync is the answer in getting the background more exposed so that there is a good exposure for both the foreground subject and the background ambient light?

    Sync the shutter to the flash at about 1/30... else use rear sync (you may need a tripod or monopod to get the car's exposure rite)
