• I like how I can see my window in the reflection.
  • The blue effect here, because you use flash, mixed studio lighting or the other lights around, actually and automatic the setup will be refer and follow on the lights around it. - WinaVD

Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS/ EOS 1000D

Newer Older

This is my first D-SLR and my newest camera. For this shot I had a north facing window to the right of the camera, a flash with a blue gel and diffuser behind the camera to the right, and a reflector to the upper left to catch some of the window light. I have been having a problem synchronizing my slave flash with my new Rebel, my slave flash goes off but its light is not recorded in the picture, but if I trigger the flash maually its light is recorded in the picture. Could anyone give me some help? EXPLORED!

    Congrats on the new cam. I wish I could help, but I am a Nikon user. You might check to see that you have the correct synch type set in your camera.

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

    What are you using to trigger the external flash, Billy? If you're using the automatic/pop-up flash on your Canon cameras it's likely that the pre-flash(s) fired before the exposure are triggering the external flash, which gives the illusion of the flash going off properly (the pre-flashes are almost impossible to see for yourself since they are so fast) but not actually with the flash used for the exposure.

    Or something like that :)

    Congrats for the new DSLR camera. I´m still learning with mine but I love it and you´ll do the same with yours. I hope to see more good photos very soon because I like your point of view very much.

    I just got given to me a similar Camera...The Canon Dig. Rebel XTi...I just need to get a new Battery Charger for it, and I'm going to be practicing.. Can't wait. Maybe we can give each other tips too.

    I have to admit, I'm a sucker for product photography. Great shot.

    How lovely, I shoot with an XS, it recently error 99'd and I've been using an XTi since. I also have an SX 120is. You're a prime example of people using the most of what they have. :)

    wow, congrats on the upgrade! awesome!

    I started with a SX 110 IS too, then progressed to a 50D.

    billy, thanks for favoriting my photos. The XS has pretty much been my first camera ever besides a cell phone, let alone a DSLR. I love the thing, only had it for 4 months, but i have a feeling i'll be sticking with it forever, and just upgrade lenses.

    If I had a 2nd chance to do it again though i would have gotten the Nikon D5000 for a few hundred more, but this XS is great for the price (and...no surprise, better than my cell phone lol).

    Hey Billy, are you still having trouble triggering your optical slaves with your rebel? If you still need to know, send me a message - there are a few ways to do this.
