Default Re: Using flash at slow shutter speed

I'd meter the scene using an incident light meter, decide what shutter speed I needed to blur the water, set the flash for the aperture indicated for that shutter speed on the flash and the camera. Maybe cut the flash back just a little to taste. Be sure the flash is the correct distance to the subject to deliver the correct aperture. Oh, I'd set the flash and camera to manual also.

If the ambient is too bright you might consider a neutral density filter or setting the camera to as low an ISO as possible.

Otherwise,
If you can work with flash attached directly to the camera check out the auto fill flash options, on the D300 with the Nikon 800 flash works pretty nifty for me.
