Portrait flash

Hello people, here a question from a RicohGR2 newbie. My experience till now is very satisfying. Anyhow can somebody advise me how to deal with using flash by a portrait. A fill in flash? Bit confused through all setup possibilities. Thanks in advance.

Welcome Bernard!

Depends on what you want to do.
Also it might help if you post pictures of yours where you used no flash and think they might have needed flash,
or pictures of other photographers with flash / lighting that you like.

Fill flash comes naturally to people who normally shoot with available light.

Ambient makes for the key or backlight, your flash brings up the shadows (racoon eyes).
