Which one do you think was shot with OCF and which with natural light?
(Answer will be on the individual photos, along with other infos)
I know I had trouble understanding"flash or OCF" in general when I first started using it. It's intimidating b/c instead of using the light source that's already there (the sun), now you're implementing and using your own light source.
Now here's an easy way to think about it. I always like to explain things practically; now lets pretend the sun is your flash.
Where do you normally NOT want the sun (In general)? Yes directly above your head or below you b/c it creates harsh shadows. Same thing with OCF. Light travels the same whether it is emitted by the sun or a device. Secondly, is it easier to shoot when the sun's light is harsh or soft?
