Dark Backgrounds

Built-in flash with wireless lighting

Here's how to take dramatic portraits against a backdrop of night scenery.

First, mount the camera on a tripod so that you can capture the background lighting. Use optional flash units to light portrait subjects. Remote flash units controlled by Advanced Wireless Lighting can light subjects from the side, throwing their features into relief.

Try positioning the flash unit in different locations until you get the results you want.
