Taking photos with wide apertures for portraits with depth of field is common, but when you’re photographing in bright sunlight with flash, you can run into exposure issues that can’t be solved – no maybe until you introduce some new technique. This helpful video tutorial shows how to deal with strong sunlight in outdoor portrait situations to produce better images.
Coming to you from Jay P. Morgan with Tilt lens, this helpful video tutorial will show you three techniques for shooting outdoor portraits with flash. Problems often arise when you start using wider apertures to create a shallow depth of field effect and to isolate your subject. Normally, in this situation, you would lower the ISO as low as possible and use a faster shutter speed to compensate for the wide aperture and ambient light, but as you add flash, you will often discover It turns out that the camera’s flash sync speed is simply not fast enough to prevent background flare. Fortunately, there are several ways to work around this, one of the most convenient being high-speed sync. Watch the video above for the full summary from Morgan.
