Tina Gionis - thanks for the post! I've done that, but it only works if the subject is not moving. If there is any movement, there is blur. how to combat this? thanks!
Melissa Jill - Hi Tina! I think I mentioned this in the post, but there will only be blurring if there is another light hitting your subject other than your flash (ambient light). If that is the case, you will have to keep your shutter speed higher to freeze the movement. But when the house lights are dimmed, this is a great trick during open dancing!
