taken at AH butterfly trail this morning.
Used 1/2000s f/4.2 with built-in flash to make the bkgrd darker. The bkgrd was rather distracting but that was the best i could find.
The red-eye was a unexpected bonus :bsmilie:

Question: is it a recommended technique to use flash and increase shutter speed to achieve a darker bkgrd effect?

comments appreciated.

btw, I saw a fellow photographer lighting up a cigarette while taking a break there. Wonder whether this would hv adverse effect on the ecosystem there esp from the nicotine.

Hiee.....

There are some school of thoughts that prefers blackened background and some prefer lighted background....

Blackened background when using flash is normally due to small aperture size.........and flash firing at the sync speed. However, slowing the shutter speed (slow sync) would be a way to get a lighted background and also a larger aperture......

Slow sync is not prefered for some cases as subject may be in a motion instance...

FOr using smaller aperture....it givesd a deeper depth of field.....well as the background is going to be blackened....it may not be a concern....

Well at the end of the day...its ....Based on your taste....
