Like it or not, hard light happens a lot outside, and if you are a portrait or wedding photographer, you can’t just reschedule the ceremony or session every time you don’t have clouds to give you soft light. So, what can you do to still create flattering images? This excellent video tutorial will show you how adding a bit of flash to the scene can be just the solution you are looking for.

Coming to you from Jiggie Alejandrino, this awesome video tutorial will show you how to use a flash to deal with difficult hard light when shooting portraits. As you will see, the beauty of this method is that it only requires one light and relatively small modifier. This will help you remain both efficient and flexible, even in situations in which you are pressed for time. And learning to balance ambient light and a strobe is one of the most important skills any portrait photographer can learn. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Alejandrino.
