Indoors, your flash is usually the predominant light where your subject is concerned.  But, when shooting outdoors during daylight hours, your flash usually serves as a fill light.  Here are Ed Verosky´s suggestions for how to approach outdoor flash photography.

Always Start with these Settings:

• Camera in Aperture Priority mode.

• Use a lower ISO setting.  Example:  ISO 100.

• Use normal sync speed for your flash if possible.  Example: 1/200 or 1/250 depending on your camera.  But have HSS ready.

• Use the widest aperture that your lens will provide while still delivering acceptable sharpness and being suitable for daylight.  Example:  f/5.6 or f/8.0.
