In this video I demonstrate how to take a low key, dramatic image, using only one light.

My first video ever doing anything like this — I will improve! I promise!!

Settings:

Camera was in Manual Mode
iso: 64
Shutter Speed: 1/200sec
Aperture: F2.8

I used those setting and verified that no light would get recorded except for the light from my strobe by taking a test shot, with the strobe off. The resultant image was completely black so, I was assured that only my strobe would light the scene. Note that even that room light directly above had not effect on the picture and actually, it looked much brighter in the video than it actually was.
