Simply brilliant thanks Glyn

Grant Baxter says:

stupid question, if i was to try and achieve this with multiple people but as a full body portrait would this work by doing what you have done but with one either side?

Stevie May says:

That's bloody brilliant

So with pop up flash it won''t work?

Thank you for the tutorial Glyn, it's been a great tool for "On Location" shoots! I have a suggestion on the flash that is a tad simpler though. I've posted a link below to a DIY flash flook I made using a Pringles can that's easier to set up when outdoors and it gives more directional control of the lighting. I just thought it might add to simplify the technic you've shared with us. Thanks again.

How do I know the "sync" speed , pls helpawesome video

Hi Glyn, thanks for this tutorial. This is most simple and crisp tutorial I have seen on the subject. Am a follower now.

Is what they call the black art?

Would this technique work when shooting a group of 4 people?

Do you have links for the umbrella and pocket wizard?

browill9 says:

awesome. thanks

I have always never understand how this type of thing works. You took one photo of you black background the took another photo of your subject using your flash when on the subject but how do you get the camera to know its all one photo and not 2 photos is there a setting someplace that does this. I have a D5100. So I guess what I am saying for example when I take one photo of something then take another photo of something my camera see that as 2 photos and not a background and subject

lucas Scott says:

i get this video, but how can we create the kind of pictures you do using natural light from window, and then also having the background, and then putting them together, thats the part im confused at? cheers glyn

Hey Glyn enjoyed your presentation at the trade show. I will be checking more of your videos. Thanks for the great tips shazbang

Cheers Glyn. Had a go at this today and it's amazing! Top tip!!!

Can you shoot an apple the same way and get it suspended in complete darkness ? have you seen the portrait of the million dollar potato ?

Aleps Gil says:

James IV says:

Thanks for the tip. Worked like a charm testing around with an off-camera flash (I should point out I am learning that still).

Now just to do thins with the person looking at you and full frontal lighting that I can't figure out
