Getting as much ambient light into your photo.

When you wonder around photography forums and looking for tip on how to shoot party/wedding/indoor photos,you probably here the common tip and its something like that:”try to get as much ambient light into your photo”

Well my tips is as you can guess:”Try to get as much possible ambient (natural) light into your shots”.

How you can do it?

  • If you are shooting  a good lit place,try shooting without flsh,or you your flash only as a fill in flash.
  • if you are shooting outdoor in a poorly lighten environment and you use an off/on camera flash,you can drug you’re shutter,by getting low shutter speeds (you can see an example bellow)

This pictures was taken with flash as fill in flash as shutter speed of 1/15sec,800ISO and f/3.5.This setting allows a lot of natural/ambient light into the picture.Even though the picture took place in the night during some kids party its looks natural.
