Can I use external flash in auto mode?

What shutter speed to use with flash?

Shutter Speed (Almost) Doesn’t Matter A flash will provide a burst of light that only lasts for a fraction of a second, somewhere in the realm of 1/1000 second or faster for most flashes. If your shutter speed is at 1/250 second or 1/50 second, both exposures will receive the full power of that flash.

Is external flash necessary for photography?

Flash is not a necessary component of a great portrait photography image. In fact, when used without intention or when used incorrectly, adding flash can have a negative effect on an image. It can destroy all of the interesting shadows in a scene, and it can even create an artificial, unnatural look to an image.

What ISO is best for flash?

ISO 100 – for the best image quality. Aperture f11 or F16 – for great depth of field. 1/160s shutter speed – to make sure we don’t have shading by the shutter curtain. Control the brightness of the image by adjusting the intensity after flash.
