To Flash Or Not To Flash ... Outside?

by Ben Olson

Always use flash? Even outside in sunlight? Why not? Why would you want to do that? You don’t need it… Right? WRONG! In many cases the flash from your camera will “fill” in dark areas that your naked eye might night see… but the lens of your camera will. Always make sure your flash is on… Unless you’re looking for that dark look in your shots...

Here’s an example. Both photos were taken in the same place. The first one is of me without the flash on. The second is of my wife with the flash on. Get it? Got it? Good.
