Studio photography – Syncing studio flashes with the Nokia Lumia 1020
“The flash on the Lumia 1020 has two short pulses. So we used a small external flash as a medium to disable the first pre-flash pulse coming from the Lumia 1020, and then fired the main external flashes only on the second pulse. This made sure the main flashes were synchronized perfectly with the moment we pressed the shutter key on the Lumia 1020.”
“We could have just used bright lights to illuminate the subject and not challenge ourselves with the flash synchronization. But for us, it was important we could capture the movement in the pictures and you can only really do that with a xenon flash.”
