The part that I hate about living in a college town is that it never fails when I find cool people to shoot or even just hang out with they graduate and movie away. That's exactly what is happening with my friend Sam, she is moving away tomorrow off to bigger and better things I am sure. On the bright side we did manage to sneak in one more shoot before she left. For this image I had a small softbox with an SB-800 camera right and slightly behind Sam. I shot wide open at 2.8 on my 70-200mm and with the open end of the alley in the shot my exposure edged past normal sync speed and to 1/800th of a second. I always keep the camera set so it can go into the high speed sync settings and it handle the scene beautifully in TTL. I processed it in Lightroom.
