INSI GHT Be flash y
I always use flash. I’m trying to capture emotion, so you need to see people’s faces. You’re shooting very quickly and you can’t ask people to move into a better light or do any of the things you’d normally do to improve a portrait. The flash makes the light more interesting and ensures that their faces aren’t lost in shadow. I shoot in manual mode so that I can set the maximum shutter speed for flash, and I like to shoot at f/8 for good depth of field. I let the D700’s Auto ISO take care of the exposure and iTTL flash mode to balance the flash with the ambient light.
