Daily Picture - Using Flash

In the past we have talked about taking pictures in the sun and how flattering it is when the sun hits the subject from behind. But, if the background is a lot brighter than the subject, you will find the subject will be underexposed and in some cases it can even be so underexposed it will look like a silhouette. If, in the other hand, we expose according to the light in the subject, then, the background will be over exposed. To accomplish a photograph where both our subject and the background are well exposed, we need to use either a flash or a reflector to fill some light in our subject and at the same time, we'll get a nice catch light in our subject's eyes.
