I have trouble using fill flash outdoors and need some help please. So one day i was by the lake with my 7D taking portrait pictures of my wife. in this case i tried using my built in flash to fill the shadows on her face and to blur the background using wider aperture at f3.5. in this case all the photos where overexposed under this settings as i reached the maxed sync speed at 1/200 and i couldn't get my shutter speed any higher. so i had to bring my aperture to like f16 to kill the extra ambient light for the flash to fill in and now i have all clear unwanted background. so how do you correctly blur the background using wide apertures/with fill flash with out overexposing the shot?? thanks in advance.
