Method Two / Bal­ance light with shut­ter speed

1 Ex­pose for am­bi­ent light

Like the first method, set Man­ual mode and ex­pose for your scene with just am­bi­ent light and at­tain a bal­anced ex­po­sure. Once again, this re­sulted in an aper­ture at f/5, shut­ter speed at 1/250 sec, and ISO100.

2 Un­der­ex­pose the scene

Un­der­ex­pose the am­bi­ent light by in­creas­ing the shut­ter speed by one full stop – in this case, we changed our shut­ter speed from 1/250 sec to a faster 1/500 sec, dark­en­ing the en­tire im­age.

3 Add your flash

Set Auto FP mode on your flash and ad­just the power un­til you have a good ex­po­sure on your sub­ject. En­sure the light doesn’t spill onto the back­ground and that your sub­ject isn’t over­ex­posed by the flash.
