To illuminate a dark scene – flash, one of the photography basics, is used which produces artificial light; you can use your DSLR camera’s Built-in-Flash or attach an External Flash.
Flash is used in Wedding Photography, Fashion Photography, Portrait Photography, Night Time Photography and Macro Photography.
When outdoors – if the subject, you are photographing is backlit or poorly lit, you can use flash to illuminate the details of backlit subjects and shadow areas.
If you are photographing in poorly lit indoors, use of slow shutter speed may result in a blur photo due to camera shake. Alternatively, if you use high ISO to brighten the photo, the image created may be grainy/noisy. Hence, use of flash is recommended here for a good photograph without the image being blur or grainy.
