Showing how Flash is used for Outdoor Portraits
Flash is normally used when you find yourself in a dark lit situation, but professionals often use Flash in Bright Daylight. The flash is used to lighten the areas of Shadows normally cast by the sun. This technique provides a very unique look to outdoor portraits. To maintain Depth of Field in your aperture, you'll need to work with Flashes capable of High Speed Sync.

This video from Pocket Wizards explains Digital SLR cameras and High Speed Sync pretty well.
