Making it Work
For EOS cameras with a built-in flash:
If you're using an external flash:
- Depending on your model, pop up or lift the flash
- Focus and shoot
- Simply select the desired automatic
exposure mode (P, AV, Tv, etc.), and
the camera will adjust your flash output
to properly expose your subject
- Hint: If you're shooting subjects in front
of extremely bright backdrops perhaps a couple in front of a radiant
sunset try adjusting the flash output
by dialing up the "plus" setting
- When shooting a scene from a distance, the built-in flash may not be powerful enough to illuminate your subject. In this case, try increasing the ISO speed on the camera for better light sensitivity. You can then increase the shutter speed or decrease the aperture to help maintain proper exposure.
- To further extend the flash range or for cameras that do not have a built-in flash a Canon Speedlite is a good choice for flash photography.
