Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Shooting with the built-in flash, part of Learning the Canon Rebel SL1 (100D and Kiss X7).
- Many photographers think that the built-in flash…is really for only shooting in the dark.…But there are a lot of times when a flash comes in handy.…Even in bright-light situations,…you can use a flash to even out the lightning…on a subject's face and to avoid shadows.…In auto mode you've already seen how…the flash pops up automatically.…If you're using program mode or priority or manual mode,…you can control when the flash fires.…Press the flash button and the flash automatically opens.…Now you can use the flash in the fill flash mode.…
The auto flash is useful for dim lighting.…The flash will pop up automatically…when the shutter released button is pressed halfway,…and fires if needed.…To change the flash settings, pop up your flash.…Then press the quick control button,…you'll notice you can fine tune the brightness of the flash.…Simply select the compensation value,…and change its value from -2 and +2,…or leave it at the default.…This will increase or decrease the intensity of your flash.…If you'd like to cut down on red-eye in portraits,…
