Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Fill flash, part of Nikon D7000 Essential Training.
People often think of the flash on their camera is only used when it's dark out.…But a dark scene is one of the times when you probably shouldn't use your flash.…The pop-up flash on your camera is really designed to provide extra fill light…when you're shooting in bright daylight.…If you've got a bad backlighting situation or someone with a hat on, you can…use Fill Flash to fill in the darker shadowy areas of the scene to produce some…more even exposure.…You've seen how the flash pops-up automatically when you're in Auto mode.…If you're in Program mode or Priority mode or Manual mode and you've decided…that you want use Fill Flash, you need to pop-up the flash yourself by hitting…the Flash button right here.…
The current Flash mode is shown in the upper LCD right here.…If it's empty like this, just a little Flash icon.…That means that you are set for Fill Flash mode.…So you're in good shape for your Fill Flash work just with the camera's…default flash settings.…We are going to look at what some of those other modes are in the rest of this chapter.…
