Flash photography is one of many rewarding skills a photographer can have. Flash can be extremely intimidating. When I first put a flash on my camera, I was terrified. Where do you even point that thing? The number of new buttons is overwhelming, but once you get the hang of it, it is a fun and necessary addition to any photo gallery.
Becoming a skilled photographer involves being able to shoot in virtually any kind of shooting scenario with varying lighting conditions, hence the need for knowledge and experience in flash photography.
I am not here to give you a technical rundown on using your flash, but I am here to share with you what works for me.
You can use flash in any lighting situation, depending on the look you are going for in your photographs.
I use flash mainly for night photography, low-light situations (for example, inside a dark building where you need to take wedding portraits), and concert photography. Some photographers also use their flash outside during the day to get a particular light on their subject.
