Nice job.

Did you desaturate the background, or is that the result of your flash relative to the ambient light level. Whichever, it looks REALLY nice.

Thanks for sharing.

There's a little bit of thinking that goes into a shot like this. Try it out. First meter your background as if you want a properly exposed picture, I used my camera meter for this. Make sure your background is within the flash sync speed of your camera. Adjust the f/stop if you need to. Then add a strobe to the mix. On a cloudy day it doesn't take much light from the strobe to make it work. Now set the shutter speed to be slightly darker/faster than the background meter reading but still within your flash sync speed.
Okay now go practice.

Didn't need to desaturate the background. It was naturally this gray at the time it was shot. The ambient light was dull in color while the strobe gave her more saturated color.

Thanks

Great way to pull off a challenging shot and thanks for the tip on how you did it. What was the watt/sec setting for your strobe?

Thanks,
Jesse

There isn't any gauge on the strobe to know the answer to that question. It was set at 1/4 power on a AB800 strobe. Mathmatically a close estimation might be figured out if the total watt second is known and then figure out what 25% would be.
