(light music) - Hi, I'm Derrick Story and welcome to the fill flash portrait photo assignment. I have lots of great stuff to show you today. I'm gonna start out on the computer and I'm gonna show you some fill flash techniques, stuff that wedding photographers and event shooters have been using for a long time. Then we'll go out into the field with a model and do a fill flash shoot. We'll put those techniques into play and so you can see how they work. Then we'll come back to the computer and analyze what we've done.

Then you'll be ready to make your own fill flash portraits and we even have a place for you to share those, the public group on Flickr. You can post your pictures, you can look at pictures by other folks, and then we can talk about it. So this is gonna be a lot of fun, so let's get started.
