Darker backgrounds due to the flash

If you take a photo with flash at twilight then the flash causes a quicker shutter speed. This means that less ambient light gets through the lens and this means that the background looks darker. There was no option about whether to use flash at this time of night but it does mean that you can't see the sea on the left and you can just make out the illuminated signs for the hotel reception in the background.

I like to go back for the first dance and I also like to go back for photos like these. We got great photos throughout the day but I think there is an added benefit to these photos as the couple are ready for some fresh air. Taking photos is a good excuse for them to have a breather.

Happy snapping
