How to Use Single or Dual Flash Light with Setting in Wedding Photography,Fashion Photography at HSS

 Flash photography is a technique that can be used to create stunning images, especially when it comes to capturing close-up details. Flash has been around since the late 19th century and was originally only available on high-end cameras for studio work. But flash photography has evolved over time, becoming more affordable and accessible for everyday use in any situation.

With flash photography, you can capture all kinds of creative images with detail and clarity that are difficult or impossible using natural light alone. This article will explore how flash photography became what it is today, as well as some tips on how you can use this incredible tool in your own photos.

To get you started exploring flash techniques, there are plenty of online tutorials to teach you. A good flash photography course will teach you how flash photography is a technique that can make all the difference in your photos. You'll also get basic information on how the flash charges and when it's best to use the flash.

Some flash photography techniques are more complicated than others, but with flash photography, you can capture all sorts of images. This includes portraits, outdoor settings, reflective images, and flash art. Flash photography is a camera technique that uses an external flash to illuminate the subject when shooting in low light or at night. This flash can also be used for artistic images and to maximize creativity.

A flash emits a flash of light from one side that bounces off a surface on the other side. This flash can bounce off the subject in the shot to great effect. You can also use flash photography to optimize photos with bounced flash. For this technique, you need to have the flash close enough for the camera to capture both the subject and the light source in the same frame and adjust accordingly.

Early flash photography dates back to the late 19th century. A man named Arthur Korn invented flash photography in the years following Thomas Edison's invention of the light bulb.

In 1887, flash photography took off before light bulbs were used and when the flash powder was still used as a flash (and this sometimes led to dangerous explosions). However, it wasn't until much later that flash photography became more accessible thanks to innovations such as bulbs and flash units with automatic exposure control.

A photographer named David Muybridge invented the first flash bulb in 1931. Soon after, in 1939, lightning appeared. Flash units for these cameras allowed photographers to take more natural photos without having to use lighting from candles or flashlights.

Various flash techniques allow you to shape the light in your photo. You can use flash to fill in light in some shadows, create a spotlight, or even add color to your scene.

Flash photography will make your human subjects look more alive. Due to the short time that the light of the flash hits the skin of a person, it gives a healthier appearance because it freezes the constantly changing blood flow under the skin.In flash photos, almost all subjects appear sharper due to flash lighting compared to ambient light photos when no flash is used.

This is due to the short duration of the flash, meaning the amount of time the light is on the subject prevents subject movement or camera shake when the shutter is open. People perceive better quality results from portrait photos with flash than without. Flash improves color accuracy and reduces noise levels in images with flash compared to no flash when shooting at high ISO levels using camera sensors.

Know when to use flash photography when you are not satisfied with the results without flash. Adding a flash of light with a different quality, color or direction can make a huge difference in the look of your photo.

You can use the flash to add some light to fill in the shadows or illuminate the entire scene. Whether you're using a single flash or multiple flashes, using flash gives you more control over the subject and background lighting.

Bounce flash focuses on reflective surfaces and illuminates your subject instead of just lighting it directly. This is a good example of using fill flash to avoid sharp shadows under a person's chin if you're also lighting them from above.

Use the flash to create shadows on the subject/background for a different visual texture. Obviously, you can use flash photography when shooting in low light or dark conditions. Think of using flash as a light-shaping tool to highlight your subject and background.

The photo above is a good example. It shows a soft light on the subject, but you can also see that she is backlit, creating an edge light on the edges of her body. The background uses purple gel flash and the circles come from a shallow depth of field to create a bokeh effect.

One of the first creative ways to use the flash is to take it off the camera. The placement of the flash on the camera is unflattering to any subject. Off-camera flash starts to get creative with the direction of the light.

If you're shining directly on the subject, it looks harsh, but at an angle it's soft. You can turn the flash up to create an edge light on the subject's face, or you can flash behind the subject for a beautiful natural vignetting.

The flash allows you to freeze movement in low light conditions that would otherwise be impossible without the flash.The right use of flash creates professional photos that look amazing and make people feel as if they are in front of a photographer with an expensive DSLR camera instead of just using their phone.

Adding light modifiers will change the direction and quality of the light, possibly even the color of the light in the case of gels. Light modifiers are items that change the bright flash of light coming from the flash into something soft and directional.

Gels are thin slices of acetate (or some other material) with a specific color. When light passes through the gel, it changes from white light to the color of the gel. Using multiple flashes with different gels allows you to bring color harmony and energy to your photos.

There are places where flash photography is not a problem, and other places where using flash is inappropriate or even rude. Since everyone can see lightning, there are places where its use is strictly prohibited. One common example of banning flash photography is a concert or stage performance. Flash distracts people on stage, so it's always best to turn off the flash at these events.

Another place where flash photography is inappropriate is in museums and galleries; most art is either fragile or priceless antiques, so shooting flash around them will permanently damage the piece. Amusement park rides are another place that prohibits flash photography. A burst of light destroys the driving environment. Besides, the results of using a bare flash on a dark ride will never turn out well.

Some people also consider flash photography rude. Using flash in a very intimate moment, such as between two lovers or when a man proposes to a woman, flash photography is considered impolite or even offensive, so the participants are sure to be offended. If you're unsure about using Flash in a particular location, it's best to ask before trying it.

There are still places where flash photography is appreciated and appropriate; capturing an active family gathering or any birthday party with flash can be perfect for some people, especially those who are not present at the actual event but want to connect through photos. Using flash indoors works well if you can bounce the light off a white wall or ceiling to create a bigger, softer result on your subject.

Position the flash off the camera and hold it at a 90-degree angle to light the entire room. Existing light will be reflected to create a softer, more natural look to your subject. Indoors with flash also works well in low-light situations where the flash shows up better than regular bulbs or low light.

Outdoor flash generally eliminates shadows by bouncing the flash off walls, sidewalks, and even the ceilings of tall buildings to get the biggest burst of white light for your subject.The idea is that you have an unlimited source of soft light that illuminates everything evenly without causing harsh shadows or other unwanted effects.

Another method of using flash outdoors is to face the subject away from the sun to prevent squinting. This position also creates a nice rim light on their body. You can then use the flash to fill in the shadow on their face as they have their backs to the sun.
