Take better photos using fill flashFlip on the flash when it's bright to amplify scene details.
[ MUSIC ] ^M00:00:09 >> [Brian Cooley:] I'm Brian Cooley with a quick how-to on taking better digital photos by turning the flash on when it's bright. I know it's counterintuitive, but even when you're shooting under bright light, you may want to turn on the flash even if your camera thinks you don't need it. Using flash under bright conditions is called "fill flash" because it fills in the dark parts of even a bright scene. Now you enable it on most cameras by going to your flash menu and selecting the manual flash mode, not auto flash. Auto flash probably won't fire under bright conditions, but the manual flash always will. So get out there and use a flash, even when the sun's out. ^M00:00:44 [ MUSIC ]
