    It all depends on the lighting conditions. If background lighting doesn't reach foreground subject, subject will always be underexposed.

    - Take pic without flash to determine background exposure.
    - If subject still dark, use flash.
    - Adjust flash compensation accordingly until subject and background are exposed correctly.

    using popup flash with [URL="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aSb5K1Xn8uE/SKq1xoZBKUI
    [/QUOTE]

    if u want to use flash and you dun have a pop up flash diffuser as shown in the link above.

    u can use tissue paper too. just it to wrap round the pop up flash. that way it will diffuse the flash more evenly then harsh flash.

    tissue paper is a temporary and cheap option u can get a pop up flash diffuser for permanent solution. see the diffuser link posted by Zahne to have an idea how it look like.

    nevertheless, you should learn how to use your ISO as well. The ISO on point and shoot cameras and DSLR is vast difference.

    This can simply means a photo with everything captured not not focus aka blur photo.

    maybe not, maybe rather a photo of an object with nice bokeh and using flash to light up the subject, aka flash bokeh picture. FBP. The fundamentals of dof is still the same regardless there is sufficient light or not.

    Bokeh with flash is certainly absolutely possible ...... you problem seem to be understanding how to adjust your flash unit to expose the subject properly

    there is a guide number on the flash ..... it is there for a reason.... please read up on it.....

    you are likely shooting with flash with subject within the GN number therefore resulting in overexposed flat type results

    have a look at Kongo's evening model images..... sounds like the type of effect you are after... his exercises very good control of the flash output to attain those results

    Put some distance between the object in focus and the background and you will see some nice bokeh.

    That will definitely solve TS' problem. Then you have a problem with whether you have enough exposure. Back to basics.

    DIY popup flash diffuser.
    1) Cut the white portion of the NTUC plastic bag to the size of your popup flash
    2) stick it to double sided tape of the same size
    3) stick it to your popup flash
    4) DIY re-usable popup flash diffuser

    For Nikon cameras and flash, there is an Auto FP High Speed Sync feature that allow you to do that. For more info, pls follow the URL. http://imaging.nikon.com/products/im...unction/fp.htm

    I believe Canon has also a similar feature.

    harshness comes from lack of diffusal as well as incorrect settings to achieve proper exposure of the subject wrt the background. open aperture for shallow dof, which lets in alot of light so u need to compensate with the appopriate shutter speeds to use together with the flash to properly light up the foreground. use of the flash exposure compensation feature is impt to maintain proper exposure with the flash as well. if can pump in some money and get a flash which can tilt and swivel which will help with bouncing as well.
