Using your flash

I often see photos where someone has missed an opportunity to take a good photo and make it a great one. Often this is caused by the use of the flash. I see friends or family members washed out because the camera is simply too close and in auto mode. The other obstacle may be that the subject is too far away for the flash to properly light the subject. The good news is a lot of this can be corrected with many of the cameras sold at your local retailer by adjusting the flash brightness or in some cases even turning off the flash when appropriate lighting is present. If you're not comfortable adjusting some of the settings in your camera, you can simply experiment by moving closer to your subject if they are too dark or moving the camera further away from the subject if they are too bright. I often will use a flash outdoors on a sunny day for some additional fill light with my flash on a lower output. This will give me a more natural three-dimensional look that will give a great final result
