    this was really interesting! such a huge difference with flash.. I usually
    just adjust the ISO or F-stop to fix the lighting but I may just try this

    This video is SO WRONG on so many levels. Horrible that she’s trying to
    show how to shoot with a built in flash. If you want to do professional
    photography, but at least two flashes and some pocket wizards if your
    camera doesn’t already have remote sends. Take this video down please, the
    misinformation of this video is WRONG!

    Cool, I have a question, I want to join the military and I want a job in
    photography. I dont want to be an actual photographer or a journalist or
    nothing like that. What I had in mind was the person who holds the
    reflector when the photographer is taking the picture. I dont want to be
    the photographers assistant though cause then that requires doing more work
    like carrying his bags and all his equipment around with him and other hard
    stuff like that, I am looking for a job that only specializes in holding
    the reflector, do they have that in the military?

    i got a nikon camera and i shoot with flash and i get nice photos, i don´t
    need to get all those accesories to get a good picture, is nice that some
    people take better photos but i wont pay for them when i can get my own
    photos without spending a fortune.

  19. Danyelle Pinnington says:

    i rather photo shop it so i know its all even , so it doesn’t show the
    bruising , or scars, or eve vanes . so the built in flash is horrible i
    barely use it.

    cheeers, onboard flash on a dslr…
    The only purpose of onboard flash is to trigger an off-camera flash.
    And a on-camera flash always looks unnatural for the simple reason that the
    position of the light is simply unnatural. Sure it light up the face but
    the on-camera flash is not a good solution. Better use a reflector instead.

    I think this is basic sfor non pro’s. Most people taking photos are not
    professionals and do not have all the expensive gear.
