National Photography Month Photo Tip of the Day 2010-05-11 09:00:29

Geek Tip: Use Your Camera's Flash Outside

Ever noticed the dark shadows cast on your friends' and family's faces after you've taken pics outside? It may seem counter-intuitive, but switching your camera's flash to the "on" position during a sunny day photo session helps to eliminate those dark shadows from under eyes and noses, and even helps to bring your subjects into focus on a cloudy day. Use your flash "Fill" setting for a general pick-me-up to your photos, and snap away!

May is National Photography Month, and in honor of the occasion I'm serving up a different photography tip, trick, or app every weekday in May, so please share your successful shots! Our Cool Capture group is not only a place to post your favorite pics, but you could also win a CanvasPop Print in our Cool Capture contest!
