Digital photos with flash indoors? Yes, please! A common misconception is that digital and flash just don’t work together as well as film and flash, but I’d say that’s not true. I have used flash or strobe with digital waaaaaay before I switched back to shooting primarily with film 8 or so years ago, and it worked and still works well together. The difference is you have to meter differently for digital than you would film, since digital is sensitive to over-exposure and the loss of highlights. Film is opposite.
So here is my latest One Light Many Looks installment with another favorite indoor session. Can you tell which images are digital and which ones are film? Tell me in the comments and I’ll let you know. The answer might surprise you!
