Just a little flash

Intermediate Photography class with Joan Day

Assignment: Use your flash to take a picture of someone against a bright sky. Adjust your camera and flash settings so that the sky isn't washed out and the person's face isn't in shadow.

So, how did I do? (Hint: I still need to tone down that flash a little more, so that it looks more natural.)

This is the first week of  Intermediate Photography, a four-week class taught by photographer Joan Day (above, center) at the Downey Adult School. We're learning to use flash effectively. I rarely use my flash, and therefore, I've never really learned to use it well. So I'm learning a lot and having fun in the process.

This week's class covered theory and some hands-on practice at the school, where we take turns being photographer and model. The rest of the weeks will be field trips, where we can practice in fun locations.
