Balancing bright sunlight and softer shadows is a common problem when you’re photographing people, and if your subject is in the shade, it can be difficult to expose your subject correctly without making your background too bright.
In this photography class Karl explains how to use fill-in flash and why and when it is useful. He shoots a number of images to show you how the technique can be used to take better portrait images.
He then also shows you how to use this same technique in low light, useful for if you’re wanting to capture city lights in the background of your image.
In this photography class we cover the following:
- How to use your compact camera
- Portrait photography
- Using fill-in flash for portraiture
- How to use fill-in flash in the daytime
- Using flash in low light
