Tip of the Week: Use of Flash While Maximising Depth


While shooting close-up and macro photographs, it is advisable to use a narrow aperture like f/16 or f/22 to maximise the depth-of-field. Due to this, the amount of light entering the camera reduces, for which you will need to use a slow shutterspeed and tripod. The on-camera flash fired at a reduced power can add some much needed illumination in the scene, and also help isolate the subject from the backdrop.
