Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Reviewing the twilight shots, part of Getting Pro Results from a Compact Camera.
Well, here we are at the final shoot of the day.…The sun is setting in the west, and before we ride off into that sunset,…I want to show you these twilight portraits of Samara.…Now let's start with what happens when you actually don't turn on the flash.…These are flash shots here, but here, we don't have that flash on and as we see…the camera exposes for the background, but under exposes our subject and that's…generally what we don't want.…So we do want to turn the flash on. We want both, right.…
But as our background gets darker, it's harder for a regular flash setting to capture it.…So that's when we move to Slow Synchro or we move to Night Portrait.…That slows the shutter down and that allows the camera to capture the…background, and then the flash illuminates our subject, and here we have a nice…combination of Samara and background.…You see that again here and then moving over to here.…Now I have just one tip for you around this and that is if you want that…background even darker, you can control that by using your exposure compensation scale.…
