And may all your…

….festive seasons be white!

A quick reminder therefore of some basic flash technique.  Look at this shot of my living room the other day:

Snow outside

To shoot that you take the following steps:

  1. Expose for the background (use your camera’s spot meter and point at a tree, or use smart metering with +1 to +2 stops exposure compensation).
  2. Add a flash you your camera. Turn the flash head above and behind you.
  3. In a white room such as this, also use flash compensation, say +1 stops for a start.

And there you go, a well exposed picture. Have fun!
