Test Shots with Flash in Bright Sunlight

Here are test shots I did in the middle of a very sunny day using a canon flash and a Mark III 1DS. First, I set my camera on manual, then metered for the sky. I set my shutter at the maximum flash sync speed, 250, and then set the proper aperture exposer. Once I got the proper exposer, I underexposed by a stop using the aperture settings. Then I played with the flash until I achieved the proper fill flash. The result is a nice dramatic sky with a properly exposed subject.
