Photography Tip: Flash Sync and TTL

My photography tip for today is all about flash photography. Despite what many may think, you cannot sync your flash with any shutter speed. The shutter curtains prevent our flash from properly exposing an image past 1/250th or 1/320th of a second (not considering leaf shutters or high speed sync). Knowing the physical limitations of your camera and flash, I help you balance the background or ambient light with your model/subject using an automatic mode most cameras have.
