Taking advantage of the built-in flash
Setting the flash mode
Adjusting flash power
Investigating advanced flash options
Cameras have gone through many evolutions since photography was invented. But one thing that remains constant is that you can't create a photograph without light. In fact, the term photograph comes from the Greek words photo, for light, and graph, for drawing. Thanks to the built-in flash on your D7500, you're never without at least a little light. You also have the option to attach an external flash for times when you need more power or flexibility than the built-in unit provides.
This chapter begins with an introduction to working with the built-in flash and then moves on to advanced flash options, many of which work with external flash units. For more tips on better flash results, especially for portraiture, see Chapter 7.
