Not only does the Fotolia Instant app allow you to toggle the Flash on and off, there is also a very useful Flashlight option! This flashlight option gives you the opportunity to take your time and adjust the exposure as you need it before capturing your scene. No more surprises like glare from reflective surfaces or underexposing your subject. To turn on the Flashlight option, press and hold the Flash icon down.

By the way, Flash is also useful in daylight, as long as it’s used at a good distance – not too far from your model for example. Flash will help you breakdown shadows created by the sun and it’ll bring a little extra life to your model’s eyes.
