Flashing and Blurry Bits

Flashing and Blurry Bits were the topic of the night at our November 18 meeting.

Otherwise know as Strobe and Bokeh (which doesn’t sound as interesting) flashing was discussed by Rob who explained the mysteries of front and rear shutter and how they relate to using your electronic flash while Gary explained how to get bits of your photos out of focus.

This can make a substantial difference as to how images are perceived.

Rob explained the intricacies of using your electronic flash to freeze your subject and when you should fire your flash. It’s not just a case of pushing the shutter and hoping for the best.
