Flash is the one tool that the average photographer really tends to shy away from. Maybe its the foreign menu on the back of the flash, the fact that we can’t see the light before the exposure, or perhaps its because we’ve seen a lot of bad flash photography. Washed out faces, harsh shadows in the background. These are just a couple of things that give flash photography a bad name.
But used correctly, Flash can help illuminate Or highlight overly dark subjects So they stand out and become the focus of our attention. Using an additional flash in the scene can make a snapshot look more like a professional portrait. It can be the main source of illumination, or simply take a dull subject and a add a breath of fresh air.
This course will make you a better photographer. A much better photographer. How you ask? First a little history.
