Lamp - fill flash with long lens test shot

With this shot I was testing how to do fill flash with a long 200mm lens. In program or aperture priority mode, my camera won't go below 1/60 shutter time when the flash is on, not fast enough to handhold at 200mm. However, by shooting the lamp first in program mode with flash off and auto ISO on, then migrating those settings to manual mode and adding flash (flash compensation -2 and bounced for fill) I could get the desired result.
