The Right Way to Use a Flash for Nature Photographs
When you first start to get serious about macro photography it is very easy to get nearly overwhelmed with all of the information that’s out there. In fact, many new photographers get so much information into their heads that they often find it difficult to simplify and find the photography techniques and skills that will work best for them as new photographers. This is especially true when talking about the topic of using a flash. There are literally thousands of articles, videos and discussion board posts that talk about the different ways you can use a flash for outdoor photo shoots.
We want to simplify things for new macro photographers. It is always in your best interest to start off with a minimalist approach when it comes to using a flash. Check out today’s macro photography tutorial video to see just what we are talking about here…
That video lesson is nice, short and gets right to the point. You don’t need to get fancy when you use a flash to take nature photographs. Simpler is always better. Remember, the sun is there to provide the greatest source of lighting that you could ever ask for. You’ll use your camera’s flash only as a way to bring a little light to the shadowy areas immediately around your main subject. Don’t get too carried away with trying to get studio quality lighting when you are out in the woods; it just isn’t going to happen.
