Slow Sync Flash Photography

In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to create the slow sync flash look in photography. Slow sync flash is a technique used to give a sense of action. It’s like mixing a blurred shot with a sharp shot, but you create it in one exposure. You basically use your shutter speed to create the blurred motion and a burst of flash to freeze the action.

Different situations may require slightly different settings but this tutorial will give you a good overview and it will get you shooting the slow sync flash photography in no time!
