Holly Wren de­liv­ers her ex­pert ad­vice on how to hide the pres­ence of flash when shoot­ing por­traits

Most pho­tog­ra­phers un­der­stand and ac­cept that di­rect, on-cam­era flash is unattrac­tive, and will try to avoid it for se­ri­ous pho­tog­ra­phy. But many pro­fes­sional por­trait pho­tog­ra­phers go a step fur­ther than that, and ac­tu­ally try to avoid the pres­ence of ob­vi­ous flash, in gen­eral. This is fine in the­ory, but hard to achieve in prac­tice dur­ing a shoot. How­ever, Holly Wren (HOLLYWREN.COM) is well-versed in this par­tic­u­lar prac­tice, and over the next few pages she ex­plores the var­i­ous tech­niques that she em­ploys on her shoots. She re­veals her kit and tack­les the shoot­ing and edit­ing in­volved in cre­at­ing per­fectly lit and ex­posed im­ages. From sun­light to low light, this fea­ture will help you to im­prove your skills and take your por­trait pho­tog­ra­phy to an­other level.
