Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Reviewing the fill flash shots, part of Getting Pro Results from a Compact Camera.
Well, here are the shots from our fill flash shoot with Samara and there is…quite a difference, as you can tell right away.…So the one here is when the flash is in Auto Mode, which means it doesn't…go off because there is lots of light, and that's the way the flash works obviously.…When there is lots of light, it doesn't go off, and when the lights go down, it does go on.…So we are in very bright light here, and obviously the flash is not going to go on, …and here's a kind of shot that we can expect in that sort of lighting.…We have a harsh light coming in from the side here.…
It's very bright and we are in shadow over here and then we have another…shadow created by the knit cap here.…The other thing that we have is we have more skin texture than we do in the…fill flash shot, because light coming from the side enhances texture, and you can…really see that down here.…Now, all we did over here was turn on the fill flash. We just went to our Flash menu,…and went to Flash On, and you can see quite a difference.…
