The Flash Meetups

Flash made this shot because both the shaded people AND the bright background are well-exposed. You'd have to bracket and blend in PS to get this otherwise, and the people would NOT be as bright even then.

    These three shots of the group demonstrate that using a speedlight for fill-flash isn't all that difficult. Just turn it on and watch for over or under-FLASH exposures, adjusting your "flash exposure compensation" up or down as needed. Like any other skill, it takes a little practice, but the results are worth it! Without flash, the natural-light shooter would have to choose between good faces and blown out backgrounds, or good backgrounds and faces that are lost in dark shadows.
