When should I Use the Flash

The flash is a very interesting camera feature, which allows changing the lighting plan of a photograph. However, the vast majority of people do not know what is the appropriate time to use artificial lighting. Always seeking to combine the image info with your aesthetic quality, we should be attentive and an artistic eye to understand the best moments of using this type of lighting. In this article from a, we will seek to explain the best moments in order to use this feature. Continue reading to know when to use the flash.

Little lit environments

The classic way to use flash. For example, nightly parties, the flash is used. To increase the light a photo there are three features: increased ISO, Aperture and flash diaphragm. In many instances the ISO can increase the photo and opening granular of diaphragm can cause an effect of overexposure in the photographic process. At parties and in the evenings, may be more interesting to open the flash.

In this case, you must use the flash in the objective point of the image. If you want to take a picture of a person, must direct the light to it. That let in focus and well used can cause interesting effects in the image.

Tip: see our article how to shoot at night.

 

Shadow correction

In some pictures, well lit, you can suffer from unwanted shadows. During the midday, for example, can arise shadows in the face of a person that will impair the aesthetic quality. In view of this, use the flash to play light in these dark spots can be interesting. In addition to contributing to the aesthetic quality of the image, the information will be clearer.

In the image below, for example, the introduction of flash left the face of the object(centralized man) more exposed and thus would make the photo more beautiful. The information would face more clearly perceived by those who look at the picture.

 

Rear light

Be in the “light” is to position itself against larger light, causing an unwanted shadow in the main object. In these cases, the use of the flash is necessary, giving more quality and beauty to information being passed.

We can see clearly the lack of flash in the photo below. If the photographer had used the flash, the couple would be in evidence in the photo at the bottom. In this case, they are poorly lit.

Our article tips for shooting landscapes will help you at the time of photographing very light environments.

Creation of other perspectives

If you want to, for example, brighten up a place with a flash mobile, you can fill in a lot of pictures with fake lights. They will create artistic effects in the photos that will add aesthetic value and can give a more theatrical feeling to the picture. Also this way can add more movement, using the formation of shadows, add feelings or to shape more clear the object.

In the image below, the photographer used the tip provided to give more depth to the face of the outbreak. Through light and shadow, added strokes and the depths a busted light couldn’t. For this, he reduced the exposure and used a low-power flash.

Tip: know your equipment and “Snoop” lighting functions. Only the practical knowledge will leave you right in time to paste flash and improve the light of their photographic productions.
