Re: help to identify/method: fashion overexposure

This look is called FABULOUS. That's a technical term.

In camera it is achieved by setting the modeling light on your flash to be quite strong, and then making your exposure "long" a half a second-second, and triggering your flash half way through exposure.

Obviously you can only press the shutter button once, so you do have to have a grasp of your radio trigger or shout to an assistant to "fire: the flash.

It could be also done in photoshop using motion blur, brush, clone, smudge, and varying the layers and opacity as well as blending modes (multiply, screen, lighten and normal).

Hope I helped

I like that technical term.
There is also a nice form of post for these images since one danger is always that you get a to warm tone in the long exposure so the yellow tone becomes a bit "dirty" towards the daylight balanced flash.
One option is to have tungsten lights that are gelled for daylight i.e. a blue filter on them for a daylight balanced ambient light and then you will not get the "dirty" yellow tone.

Quite true, yet many like the "yellow" tones. also, you could get 5600k modeling lamps online, so even that isn't a problem, but good tip.

Dooo
Why did I not think of that, I have always disliked the dark yellow tone when doing that and done a lot of post to remove, especially when you also want that warm, glossy, evening sun kind of white balance that most of the above shoots have.
I will have to go shopping now then

Eh?

Just set your camera to REAR CURTAIN so that the flash fires automatically at the end of the long exposure. Every camera has this mode.

not that simple...
take the 5d2 for example, AFAIK that option is only accessible paired with certain speedlight flashes... and it wont work with off camera flashes.

I don't know how Canon handles this but with my Nikon I can set it to Rear Curtain and it work's fine with my triggers.
