- Tony Cary – Room With A View
It was cloudy last night, and even a little drizzle when I took Max outside around 11 pm (23:00) but surprisingly I woke up to see this in the middle of the night. Max woke me up again with his bark of wanting to go outside. In order for me to capture this image, I had to use fill flash and recently learned from Scott’s blog that you can tune it down to capture a softer image. This is something new to me because I always use it at full blast and the image looks real harsh and flat. In the menu setting of your camera you go to Flash control, Built-in flash func. setting, then set Flash exp.comp to a negative power for less flash, and I had this image on -2. I didn’t want to turn on the light in the room, and without the fill flash I wouldn’t be able to capture the image of the drapery and window frame at all.
