Foundations of Photography: FLASH (2.5 Hrs)


Harsh, unflattering lighting can ruin a photo—and with flash, it's easy to get harsh, unflattering lighting. But flash is a necessary part of a photographer's toolset; after all, the world doesn't always provide you with the best natural light.

Fortunately, it isn't difficult to get great results from flash, and in this course, we cover the concepts and techniques behind effective lighting with flash. Dana starts with simple techniques that improve the results from a camera's built-in flash and fill flash techniques.

Topics include:

  • How flash works
  • Balancing ambient light and flash
  • Understanding flash ranges and modes
  • When to use fill flash
  • Using an external flash
  • Bouncing flash to improve light
  • Which brand of flash should buy?
