“Using a Flash in the Sun” – Tutorial Video by Mark Wallace on AdoramaTV

In this episode on AdoramaTV, Mark answers the question, “Why are you using a flash when shooting outside in bright sunlight?” Mark also goes over the difference in power output between built-in flash and external flash. The whole point of using a flash in the sun is to overpower the sun, thus getting rid of the nasty shadows on the model. The trick is to shoot in high-speed sync so that the lighting is balanced between the shaded and non-shaded areas.
