But, first, I thought I should do an indoor “portrait” using the camera’s automatic-mode (with ring flash) to compare the subsequent images with.
I lit the scene using an LED Panel aimed at / bounced by an off-white ceiling.
And, just like that, the image aren’t monochromatic anymore!
But, even though I reduced the intensity of flash, you can see that the flash was still WAY too strong.
Plus, I’m not a fan of direct flash. So, I decided to turn the flash off next time.
I wanted the ‘portrait’ to be less soft/blurry, so I shot the second photo at f/16. Since I decided not to use the ring flash, I needed to use a slow shutter speed . . . which means . . . I needed a tripod or a sturdy surface to place the camera, especially because I needed to adjust the camera’s settings and to press the trigger using the app.
The app is quite easy to use. You can adjust the f-stop, shutter speed, focusing distance zones . . . and, it has a light meter as well.
