Using Fill Flash for Travel Photography

I couldn't resist buying several scarfs from this beautiful young girl in Peru! She has the sweetest smile, and she is very good at marketing! Everywhere in Peru there is color, such a vibrant place. This image was optimized in camera raw, and tweaked in Photoshop using Nik Viveza and Nik Color Efex Pro.  For people shots while traveling, I use flash with a Gary Fong Lightsphere Collapsable Inverted Dome Diffuser which diffuses the light and keeps a natural look to the image. The Lightsphere is perfect for travel, and collapses flat fitting in my backpack when not in use. Have fun shooting! ~ Deb
