Behind the Lens - Fill-flash

Using a flash in bright daylight seems crazy, but the technique can improve harshly lit subjects and help eliminate shadows.

Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo.My on-camera flash helped fill in the shadows and darker areas of these subjects as they stood beneath a shade tree near dusk waiting to participate in the fifth annual Lawrence Zombie Walk Thursday, Oct. 6, 2011. Because of the limited range of an on-camera flash, you usually need to be fairly close to subjects for fill-flash photography to work. My exposure with flash was 1600 ISO, f/6.3 aperture and shutter-speed of 1/40th.
