Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Flash exposure compensation, part of Canon 60D Essential Training.
The flash on your camera has a range of about 10 to 12 feet.…Beyond that, your flash simply won't have any effect on your image, but within…that range, moving your camera and its flash closer or farther from your subject…will result in more or less flash illumination on that subject. That should be…pretty intuitive: put the flash right in someone's face, and they might end up…with too much light on them.…Flash exposure compensation is a way of controlling how much light the flash…puts out. By dialing in negative flash exposure compensation,…you can reduce the intensity of the flash to go from something like this, to…something like this.…
You dial in flash exposure compensation by hitting the Q button to bring up the…quick control screen, and come all the way down here to this thing that's just…below exposure compensation. And you can tell that it's got a exposure…compensation icon, which is the little plus/minus, combined with a little flash…icon. You can see by default I'm at 0 right now.…
