hi to all, i need to clarify something which i have doubts... the diff between 1st and 2nd curtain flash.
if let's say i wanna capture the surrounding light using a long exposure, say 2 secs... and at the same time takin a shot of a person (without the person having any motion blur due to the long exposure), i shd use 1st curtain, at the same time, tripod is been used... am i correct? i cant use 2nd curtain cos the person will have movement recorded...
on the other hand, if i shoot with 2nd curtain, the person will have trailing movement and a image when the flash flashes b4 the shutter close... but the person's image is not clear, it seem rather opaque, like a ghost.... how do i capture the movement and at the same time record a clear image of the person in 2nd curtain?
btw, using canon 40D with 580ex mk II
hope i make myself clear... cos quite diff to put in words
TIA for all the advise
