Indoor Camera Flash
Dirk Wächter Mixes Available- and Flashlight
In this practical FotoTV tutorial photographer and blogger Dirk Wächter demonstrates how to achieve better flash photos in indoor areas.
Most photographers know that shooting indoor flash photos can be at times quite challenging and some photographers are even often shocked at their results of overexposed people in the foreground and dark undistinguishable backgrounds. Weddings, corporate functions and birthday parties are just some of the situations where an additional light source is needed to achieve great indoor photography results. Today Wächter discusses numerous manual and AV camera and flash settings and useful techniques for indoor portrait photography, as well as a few special effects that will more than satisfy your expectations. The settings and techniques he demonstrates result in great lighting on people in the foreground and still have the impact of the room lighting and features in the surrounding shot.
Wächter does not stop with producing fantastic portraits; he also shows several special effect techniques. Although using slow sync flash is for more complicated exposures, Wächter uses it to compose an impressive and creative shot using blurry long exposures. Your photo will definitely stand out of using this technique.
As we watch Wächter, we learn the best way to become better at flash photography is to analyze the photos and try to figure out what could have been done differently in order to create a better flash-filled exposure. Simply follow his tips and techniques, and you too will be creating stunning indoor flash photos.
