INSI GHT Be flash y

NPhoto - - Apprentice -

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.
