Knowing that many of my clients also love taking photos in their spare time (and at office parties) I was rather pleased to have bumped into the digital photography school site.
I have a film slr and a digital point-and-shoot — one day I’ll upgrade to a digital slr, but there are greater demands on my cash at the moment.
I don’t know if you suffer from it, but I’ve noticed many times the problem of ‘flash blowout’.
Back in the good ol’ days (just after powder and flash bulbs), I learnt to pop a handkerchief over my flash gun to reduce the power of the light.
Old tricks still work in this new digital age, it seems:
“One of the most effective ways of doing this is simply to find some semi opaque material to place over your flash. I’ve seen some point and shoot owners stick a little white tissue paper over their flash and others do this with a little piece of cellotape (the semi-opache kind).”
More great tips over at the digital photography school site.
