  Flash Blow Out: Avoiding It  

Flash blow out is actually common. It is a problem that many individuals have who are unfamiliar with using their camera or have little experience taking great quality photos. You can improve this though. Flash blow out happens when a room is darker or otherwise poorly lit and the picture that results is virtually impossible to see. In other words, the flash on your camera completely ruined the subject of the shot. The subject of the shoot is usually surrounded by bright light. You can avoid this though.

One of the first steps in improving flash blow out so you can avoid the problem is by stepping back. You may have been taught that you should be as close to your subject as possible, so that you fill up the entire space with your subject. This is good advice, but not in a poorly lit room. The closer you stand to the subject, the more blurry and bright they will be. Rather, step back and instead zoom in on the subject. This will disburse some of the light throughout the room (from the flash) keeping the subject properly lit.

Another way to avoid that flash burnt out look is to bounce the flash. This process involves causing the light from the flash to bounce off another surface before it hits your subject. The problem with this is that most point and shoot cameras do not give you the ability to do this. So, you have to be a bit more creative to make it happen. Use a white, small card in front of the flash. Angle it up or towards a wall so that the light has to bounce off that surface before it hits your subject. Always ensure you use a white card, otherwise, any color on the card will end up showing up in the picture as it will change the color of the light you use.

Flash burn out is a problem for most digital camera users in this poorly lit situation. Take the time to light the room properly, if it is possible to do so, so that you can avoid the need for using these tips. If you can't do that, invest a bit more time in taking the shots. That way, you have the ability to get a fantastic shot, even when the situation is not perfect. Most cases will result in no bright lights surrounding your subject, then.
