And that folks is a first. I honest to God never expected to hear something like that come from you to me.
Post yours anyway! I may disagree.
-both you two got some pretty cool shots though!

If you use my settings of 1/8000 and F5.6 and reciprocity, you needed to set the camera for the correct exposure looking into the sun then light the model at F45 if I did the math right, again using my settings. YMMV.
IDK how the shutter curtain movement would figure into this though.
At any rate, it is a great shot and I like it.
Thanks. I had to use a shutter speed of 1/250th to sync with the flash (reflected light didn't work). So ended up at 1/250th at f 32, which is far as my lens would stop down. Have to make compromises, which is why the result isn't what I wanted.
I suppose you could have used graduated ND's and made it work too. Using my settings again, with the ND 3 and the ND 8 you could use 1/250 and F32 (or more ND for a bigger aperture) then blast light on the model.
I know what you mean! I literally was sitting at my desk with the sliding door open. It was 6:20. I said to myself "oh crap". I don't remember what made me think of the eclipse but I grabbed the camera and went at it.
