Lighting / Re: Long exposure Portrait with second curtain Flash - Advice.

Thanks to all for your comments.
c-law , I think the movement does make sense I do have a number of picture with no blur , maybe she was in more comfortable positions.
I guess the best solution is bump up ISO or F to reduce the exposure time so less chance of motion blur.

Lighting / Long exposure Portrait with second curtain Flash - Advice.
« on: October 06, 2013, 04:08:27 PM »
Hi All

I have recently done a portrait shoot with the city lights as a background at night. The attached shot was a 10 Sec exposure on a canon 6D with a Canon 430EXii mounted on top. The Flash was on second curtain. If you look closely at the picture the models arm is ghost like. How do I overcome this problem.  Was my flash not powerful enough to over power the 10Sec exposure? Would it help if I took the flash off camera and triggered it closer to the model? Or should I position the model away from bright background light.
Thanks for your help and thoughts

Thanks for your review Dustin,

I bought this lens this week but have only taken a few test shots and very impressed so far , most of my testing has been at f2.8. Sharpness and Bokeh is amazing.

I have rented the Canon 70-300L before and was impressed with the lens how does the Tamron with a teleconverter compare on a practical basis , I do know you loose 20mm ? Do you know if Canon teleconverters will work on the Tamron?

What I have read is that the Canon 6D maximum read rate is 50mb/s  and bus speed is 108hmz . The 95mb/s cards needs a camera compatible with 208mhz bus speed to use all the performance. I have a sandisk extreme and pretty happy with the performance.

First time taking portraits in a studio environment working with lights etc...
Let me know what you think criticisms welcome. used Canon 6D and 24 -105L ,
Two of my best shots so far....
