White Nights Photos at Brighton & Hove

Last weekend there were zombies, ping pong, street theatre, graffiti artists and 80’s style dancers, a great opportunity for some night photography and experimentation with second curtain flash.

This photo taken of dancer Amanda Jane Faulkner was taken at a shutter speed of 1/60 s with “second curtain flash” set on the flashgun. This ensures that the shutter opens, the subject moves, and blurs, then at the end just before the second shutter curtain closes the shutter, the flash fires and freezes the motion. This gave the lovely “flames hair” effect. The slower the shutter speed set, the more blur is obtained.
