Flash photography is one of the most popular forms of photography today. But how well do you really understand the science behind it? Here are some things to keep in mind when taking flash photos:
1. The brighter the light, the better the picture. This is because flash photography helps to illuminate darker areas of a photo that would otherwise be too difficult to see.
2. Red eyes are a common side effect of using flash photography. This is usually due to the fact that the light from the flash is reflecting off of the blood vessels in the eye. To avoid red eyes, try to take your pictures when your subject’s eyes are relaxed, or use a lens filter that blocks out the red light.
3. Flash photography can cause “noise” in your pictures. This is an unwanted pattern of random pixels that can appear on your photos when using high ISO settings or taking pictures in dark conditions. To avoid noise, try to use a low ISO setting when taking flash photos, and make sure to take plenty of test shots so you can check for any unwanted patterns before moving on to your final picture.
