Just started shooting people seriously and was playing around with fill-flash yesterday.

Great photo but a little too hot on the fill. Try -2/3 to -1 EV FEC. Should be perfect.

Could you elaborate? "Too hot" overall (in relation to the background), or in specific areas? Thanks.

Just my opinion but I find her face and chest a bit too bright from the flash exposure in relation to the background. I like the picture a lot and think that it would have benefitted from a bit of minus FEC. I'm pretty sure that I could fix it in post processing.

I agree. For that specific photo, I think just enough fill to prevent her face from being really dark would be just fine. Past that point then the face becomes too bright and the interesting cast shadow gets diluted too much.

But I'm also one of those people who's not a big fan of the big HDR craze, since so much of those heavily processed photos become so flat in lighting that all the interesting interplay of light and shadow and forms are gone--sort of processed to hell and becomes lifeless. A similar effect can happen when there's too much fill light in what's supposed to be a high contrast lighting scene (especially if part of the visual interest is supposed to be the cast shadows)--it ends up looking very unnatural and screams "fill flash!" and "reflector!" It can work in some situations--it's kind of a case-by-case consideration. In general I think using a large sun diffuser looks much better, but without assistants it's pretty much impossible for one photog to use one, especially if there's any wind at all.

Thanks for the feedback. Something to work on next time. :-)
