High Sync Speed techniques for wedding photography.
Why do we need to use the High Sync Speed (HSS) technique in the wedding photography business? Actually you don’t! Most of the wedding photographers don’t even have any idea what HSS means…
Theoretically every standard flash have maximum shutter speed limit and usually this value is around 1/160 -1/250 sec and depends on the manufacturer of the flash.
We don’t want to discuss the very well known and a little borrowing technical aspects of HSS. You can find a lot of the info about this subject on the web :just search for HSS.
Practically HSS unlocks the limits of the camera/flash system and giving the gateway to your creativity. You can create the priceless pictures practically on any light situations: indoors ,outdoors etc. By increasing the shutter speed from the standard value to 1/4000 sec we still can use the max aperture of the lens (2.8 or lower) even in the sunny day and to get an excellent subject/background separation (the background will be unfocused).
There are endless opportunities for HSS technique for wedding photographer in the indoors situations like the first wedding dance with a lot of smoke around the couple. The standard flash simply can’t create the good quality picture at this situation and most of the photographers are using on or off camera light. The results with HSS techniques are simple outstanding and depends only on the skills and creativity of the photographer.
We just had my sons 1st birthday cake smash done over the weekend. I have NOTHING but good things to say. From the second of booking to now GSR has gone above and beyond my expectations. From amazing photos to such an amazingly quick turn around on photos I am absolutely blown away and will be booking our next set of photos soon! Melissa
We had family portraits taken in October 2018. The GSR team did a great job of helping us form poses, and were careful to make sure that we were getting good shots as we moved through all the different combinations of people we were doing. They also did a great job with our young daughter. We got about 200 photos from our 90 minute session and they look great! Highly recommended.
Very professional and friendly! My daughter needed a headshot for the musical theatre she is in. They really helped my daughter feel relaxed and be herself. The experience was great and fun! The photos turned out amazing. We would definitely go back again and recommend them to friends.
It was a great experience from the time of booking till the end. Both Elina and Gregory are well versed in their profession and have a relaxed professional environment. I strongly recommend their services and you won't be disappointed! Definitely a premium level service and the pictures are a reflection of it.
Amazing pictures!!! I had my business pictures taken today, perfect quality, professional and impeccable work!!! I am happy I chose this company and I will come back to them for more pictures in the future!
I really loved how my pictures turned out their set ups are amazing. They made our session fun an i did not feel rushed at all. I have gone to other photographers for other photos and do not compare to GSR this is the best place i have gone to and with a decent price. These are my go to photographers from now on.
Gregory and Elina are very talented, professional and committed to delivering only high-quality images. Both my husband and I were very happy to see the beautiful shots they captured during our wedding and will not hesitate to use and recommend their services in future occasions.
Thank you very much Elina & Gregory!! Excellent and professional! My whole family had a excellent experience with you two (GSR Studio) and we loved all the photos! Strongly recommended for other people!!!Chan’s family
If you're looking to get professional pictures such as family, personal, professional head-shots then this is the place to go! I highly recommend GSR Studio, very comfortable environment, personal attention, no rushing, and they made me feel super at ease. Photos are exceptional, high quality and same day turn-around. If you're considering any photos make sure that your fist call is to GSR!
Excellent service, very professional. I took my daughter to this place for a few headshots before she gets a haircut for summer. Ella had all kinds of beautiful headbands to match my daughter’s dress. I received all the shots in my inbox the day after. I highly recommend GSR studio and will use their services again.
We had such a great experience with GSR Studio and are in love with how our family photos turned out! The photographers were so patient and professional. Elina and Gregory are very creative and they have a great eye for capturing precious moments. They made my 3 year old (who normally doesn’t like her picture taken) feel so comfortable and engaged her in the process. She loved all of their props and accessories so much that she was posing like a little model! We will definitely take our future family photos at GSR Studio!
We are extremely happy with our experience w Gregory and Elina. They were so professional and friendly in the same time. Our daughter was happy during the photo shoot, and we loved the photos... thank u G and E for making her birthday photo shoot so much fun..
For anyone looking to have their newborn photos taken: GO FOR IT!! Elena and Gregory were of utmost professionalism!! They were very gentle and patient with my little one, knew how to calm him for poses, never rushed the process. The results were just AMAZING!!!!! Again, Thank you Elena & Gregory, it was a pure pleasure!!
Greg and Elina are very nice and professional. My 2 years old was scared at first but they know ways to make her feel comfortable.you get to review a few pictures right away and Greg's photography skills is awesome.Highly recommend them
Gregory and Elaine provide a warm, friendly and fun experience with their photography. The experience my family had having pictures taken left all of us with smiles on our faces. The photographs themselves are great quality and well worth the prices! Thank you for the great experience GSR Studios!
We did our newborn photos with GSR. They were so professional and amazing with our baby. The studio was set-up exceptionally well and was very comfortable for us, as well as our baby. The room was pre-heated and GSR took the utmost care to ensure that she was comfortable throughout the session. They had a wide range of outfit and prop choices, allowing us to create the perfect set of photos to remember our baby as a 1 week old. We could not be happier with the experience and the quality of the final product. Thank you GSR!!!
Hired GSR Studio for our son’ first birthday party. Gregory and Elina were awesome, very professional and have an eye for capturing the special moments. Excellent communication before, during and after the event. We are delighted with the end results, pictures were edited to a professional standard with a quick turnaround time for us to get the final product. We will be using them again for our next event. Highly recommended!!
Wonderful experience. It was a 30 minutes session and we were late but they didn't rush us and the session went pass 30 minutes but yet they didn't just rush to wrap it up. All the photos they took were very nice. We are very satisfied. Price is very reasonable as well. We will definitely book a session again when our baby is older.
This was a fun exercise....he really wants to do the very best job and goes above and beyond the call. Though this is a home studio the equipment is very up to date with nothing lacking...I highly recommend...I will definitely use him again.
Relaxed but professional atmosphere, which includes the manner of the photographer, whose gentle coaching was helpful. Also, the call-back system of their reception is friendly, prompt and reliable. Overall a stress-free, even enjoyable, experience.
I am very pleased with the results of professional photo shoot in Gregory's studio. You can tell that he loves his profession and wants to get the best results for his clients. Definitely recommend to anybody who is looking for a high quality photos!
I had fun working with Gregory and Elina during my photo session. They were very meticulous with their work and the results were simply amazing! I am an amateur photographer and I recognized the kind of equipment they used which was top notched. I am more than pleased with their work and results. Thanks Gregory and Elina!!
Professional, Detail oriented and with a Taste - These are the top attributes (out of many) that come in to my mind with regards to my experience with GSR Studios. Their expertise and latest camera gear made sure that the portrait shots come out perfect.. every time. I would really recommend them for any photography needs. And, Special thanks to Gregory, keep up the good work.
I had the opportunity to get myself professionally clicked at one of the job fairs by GSR Studio. They are very professional, helpful and pleasant to work with. I am very please about the result of their photography and editing skills. I would recommend them highly.
GSR offered a free shoot at the job fair I attended at Mississauga Convention Center. I must say that they clicked one of the best picture of mine so far and that too in seconds. The gesture they did was a boon for the newcomers since the photo-shoots in Canada is generally expensive. I strongly recommend to use their service in the near future.
They did a great job with the Business shoot... Both Gregory and Elina know what they are doing and what the clients expect. I strongly recommend their services to anyone who wants great photographs taken.
Great service, very professional. I highly recommend this studio. What I really liked about my experience is that it took no time to produce great results - no delays/waiting, they new exactly what needed to be done. And it only took 30 min overall. They made it so easy for me. Keep it up guys and thank you!
Amazing photoshoot!!I love their service and quality of work. They are very friendly and professional. I love all the pictures and will defiantly recommend them for future. Thank you for amazing work 🙂
I contacted GSR Studio for my daughter's Bat Mitzvah after I saw the work they did on a friend's wedding. I could not be happier with the results I got too. The pictures are absolutely beautiful. They captured moments that I did not even think of, moments that will last forever now with the pictures. They were also very professional throughout the process, very easy to deal with and very fast in handing out the pictures. I can recommend GSR Studio to anybody that wants to make special moments memorable. Thank you Elina and Gregory.
Great service and beautiful photos. Elina and Gergory were kind, patient and able to capture amazing photos of our daughter during her newborn photo shoot (which we were able to book last minute thankfully). Their props are beautiful and Elina's eye for detail made all the difference. They are also reasonably priced for the services and prints they offer. I would recommend them and look forward to working with them in the future for our daughter's milestones as well as any future children. I have already recommended them to some of my friends who are expecting. Thank you GSR!
GSR Studio is one of the best studios in GTA to go for professional pictures. Elina and Gregory are highly professional and very nice and polite. They are very good with kids. The studio has the best equipment and a lot of props. Elina and Gregory were taking pictures for my daughter's dance auditions/portfolio. My daughter and I had a lot of fun at the studio and got amazing pictures as a result. Highly recommended!!!
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Elina and Gregory. Our maternity shoot last weekend was so much fun and the pictures turned out so good! They made us feel so comfortable during the whole time and their response time to questions and final photos is outstanding. Looking forward to the newborn photoshoot in couple of months 🙂 Keep up the great work!!! - Jet and Amy

Had a great experience at GSR studio. Elina and Gregory are very professional from booking the appointment to receiving the photographs. They were able to capture beautiful photos of my newborn. I would definitely deal with them again.
Gregory & Elina, we are so happy with the pictures you took at our daughter's Bat Mitzvah! From the first call till the last picture received, professionalism and details galore! Every single picture taken is a treasure to last! They're pleasant to work with and go out of their way to please throughout the event. Thank you GSR Studios!
Our first time with GSR Studio has been a wonderful experience. The photos taken for my father 80th anniversary are absolutely beautiful!! The clarity, color, and variety are excellent! I don't think many photographers could have achieved this result. Gregory and Elina are masters of light! The team are true professionals – they gave us direction and guided us with the poses and made us feel really comfortable throughout the whole process. Rony also showed us the shots on a computer, so we could be sure we were getting the results we were looking for. I highly recommend GSR Studio –very professional, on time, fun, easy to work with and much attention to details.Vera
