Ghostly Puppy by Paul Myrick

This very high-key effect photo was taken with a Samsung NX300M camera using a 45mm fixed length Samsung lens.  Manual settings: shutter speed at 1/160 and aperture was set to F-stop 1.8.  The hot-shoe mounted flash was a Vivitar 285HV flash.

Tips On How To Get This Photo Effect

With a Samsung NX300M camera, the fastest sync shutter speed for a hot shoe mounted flash is 1/160.  If the shutter speed is set any faster, the flash won’t fire.

Very light- or white subject matter with dark features works best for this effect.  The puppy in this photography has white fur.
