    I hate to burst your bubble, Dave, but you froze the ceiling fan with your flash, not with the shutter speed required to stop the action. While this works indoors on a ceiling fan (and people too), it's not of much value for sports (which was why you tried the experiment in the first place), because most flashes don't have the reach. I know this is confusing, but here's a thread where we discussed it in much detail (while looking at Andy's awesome wedding pics...): http://www.dcresource.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21644

    I was about to make the same comment. That fan must have been moving at glacial speed to be frozen at 1/60 sec exposure - unless the flash fired which it did.
    The whole point of this I think was sports images so really you should be outside shooting cars driving down the street or anything else that is moving that does not require a flash ti freeze it.

    Keep trying

    Dave,

    Keep trying. I am new to this as well and find that figuring it out is most of the fun.

    Jammison55,

    I read your original reply to Dave's question and have to say that is one of the best replies I have read, and I have been pouring through the forums trying to learn. Thank you for taking the time to help us beginners out.
