Hello all!

I just tried to shoot a skateboarding contest. The sun overhead was quite harsh and I decided to use the SB800 to fill in the shadows on the skaters face. However, the max shutter speed I could get with the flash was 1/250 which was not fast enough to freeze all the action.

How can I use my flash with a faster shutter speed, or can I?

Sorry if this is a dumb question, I'm new to using flash.

Oh, I had this mounted on my D300 if that makes any difference.
