How to Take Better Photos with Fill Flash
I’m Brian Cooley with a quick how to on taking better digital photos by turning the flash on when it’s bright. I know it’s kind of intuitive, but even when you are shooting under bright light, you may want to turn on the flash even if your camera thinks you don’t need it. Using flash under bright conditions is called fill flash, because it fills in the dark parts of even a bright scene.
Now you enable it, on most cameras, by going to your flash menu and selecting the manual flash mode and not auto flash. Auto flash probably won’t fire under bright conditions. But the manual flash always will. So get out there use a flash even when the sun is out.
