I'll be honest with you.…Fill-flash isn't my favorite lighting technique, but there are times when…you need to use it.…For example, a wedding reception, you can't stop and have everyone pose.…You need to shoot in the light that's available and that's what this helps us with.…So we have Edie here today to help us out, and what I am going to do is I am…going to take some shots of her right now without fill-flash and then we are…going to try to improve the scene using fill-flash. All right, Edie.…Let's just take a shot of you right here.…
Okay. Good. Good. That looks good. Excellent.…Just one more there.…Now, as I am looking at these shots here, they are pretty much what I expected.…They are very contrasty.…They have some very hot areas and some very dark areas.…So the way I am going to counteract that is with the flash itself.…The flash will bring in some light from the front and it will even out those tones.…Now, you may be interested about this bracket right here.…This is a very, very helpful tool.…
