Before you take the plunge, let me give you a tip.
Spend a few bucks on a 6ft Vello Flash cord
If you don't have a flash, get one (you would need it for the 5DIII anyways, no pop up)
You don't need the latest and greatest flash, any ETTL will do.
Use the flash OFF CAMERA with your left hand....keep shutter speed slow (play with it...maybe 1/20 or 1/30)
The OFF CAMERA FLASH will freeze your subject and the slow shutter speed will expose the background.
What most people don't understand....natural light isn't what makes a picture look better, it's having a light source that is anywhere but ON CAMERA.
Thanks I have a 430ex ii. I will try that.
Welcome....then you are one step ahead....your flash is better than mine
Just curious what were your settings for that shot?
