(Music Playing) Hi! I am Derrick Story and welcome to the Fill Flash Portrait Photo Assignment. I have lots of great stuff to show you today. I am going to start out on the computer and I am going to show you some fill-flash techniques, stuff that wedding photographers and event shooters have been using for a long time. Then we will go out into the field with a model and do a fill-flash shoot. We will put those techniques into play and so you could see how they work. Then we will come back to the computer and analyze what we have done.

Then you will 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 going to be a lot of fun. So let's gets started.
