Ive been reading on flash photography lately. Have a question in mind..... Lets say im using an external flash in Shutter or Aperture pirority, and then I wanna illuminate the foreground and the background is dark.... lets say at night. So, the camera will probably give me a setting for low ambient light, which means slow shutter speed. The thing is lets say the picture I am taking contains people in the foreground, it doesnt make sense cos the low shutter speed means the people in the foreground will have to stay still for a few seconds??? Is there anyway to get around this?
Also, I also read that flash output levels can be adjusted. Just want to know how much to adjust? Is it based on experience? Lets say the ambient is already quite bright but I wanna do fill flash. How much lower to adjust the flash output?
Anyone knows about this?
