I'm trying to take some portrait shots using strobe but I find it almost impossible to get a shallow depth of field. My D2X can sync at 1/320s so aperture is about F8~F/11
I've tried attaching a cir-PL but that only brings down 2 stops. The strobe is already at low power setting and if I move it further away I can't get the shadow and background exposure that I want.
I don't want to use a continuous light as it will literally melt my model
So..... any advice?
