    While natural light can be wonderful for portraits, adding some off-camera flash can fill in shadows, shape the face and add a beautiful catch-light to the subject’s eyes. This simple addition can change a portrait from “Ok” to “Wow”! Despite its many advantages, many photographers from novice to professional fear adding flash to their environmental portraits because they think it will look un-natural and consistently finding the right mix remains a mystery. Join instructor Joe Brady as he takes away the mystery of blending flash with ambient light. Once you learn to take control of your flash it will become one of your favorite outdoor portrait tools. The combination of off-camera flash and a light meter to measure flash contributions will give you complete control to craft the portraits with added shape and dimension that your clients will love.
