Off Camera Fill Flash

With FlashWithout Flash
So one of the reasons I hate shooting in direct sunlight is because the lighting can be quite harsh. Just check out the photo above.

The one on the right was shot without a flash. The one on the left is one with a flash.

Both are a bit "harsh" but the one on the left shows off everything and there's no harsh shadows caused by the sun. The shadows were evened out with the flash. Using a reflector also works, but it's slightly less blinding. Since it's just a flash, where you're blinded by a reflector the whole time.

I actually tried to use an umbrella for the above shot so the light isn't as harsh, but the wind blew and the whole flash stand fell over. LOL

I guess sandbags are the next thing to pick up for my studio kit. :>
