Add flas h outdoors
An off-camera Speedlight or two can lift your outdoor portraits to a new level
Supplement natural light with flash to create a huge variety of looks, perhaps with a pop of fill flash to even out shadows, or something more dramatic (left). Here the deep shade under the trees makes a balanced exposure between foreground and sky impossible without the use of flash. Two Speedlights lift the subject: one placed to the left of the camera, the other behind the model, to our right (see page 26 for more on this).
