“When shooting in a small room as a “studio” is it possible to stop flash from affecting the ambient? For example, if I have a color LED lighting a wall and I’ve exposed in camera for how I want that to look, when I take the shot and use flash for the subject it ends up washing out the background. I assume the light is bouncing around off walls and such in the small room. Is there a trick to handling this?”
