Summary

In this film, photographer Martin Krolop covers the exciting topic of fill flash. Using a fill flash is not only for use at night or during low light situations, but it can also be used on a bright sunny day. In this basics course, Krolop gives us practical information on how to achieve professional looking photos using a built-in flash.

Most photographers have at one point or another run into a problem when they are photographing outside using a fill flash. The most common dilemma being either the main subject, model or friend is underexposed, or the sky is underexposed. One way to remedy the problem is to use exposure compensation and dictate the camera to underexpose the subject and let the flash do the rest.

As we look at Krolop's test photos we can see that this easy little trick results in a correctly exposed sky as well as a correctly exposed main subject. In conclusion, Krolop's demonstration photos and useful information will help photographers get better pictures simply by using the flash in manual mode.

hi, thanks, good informations and a good Speaker vgMarkus

nice tutorial

I always use the manual mode, because the results are much more predictable. To my opinion, using the automatic mode with underexposure isn't a good idea. But maybe it depends on the camera which method gives the best results. In the video both of them are explained, so give it a try.

Av vs automatic mode

i think there is a problem with terminology. He says set the camera to automatic mode but he actually sets it to aperture priority mode when TTL calculates the required power for the model. Am I right?
