It can be quite frustrating when the lighting conditions are insufficient when shooting, which makes it difficult to shutter speeds fast enough to freeze a photo’s object. When encountered with such a predicament, a flash (whether it be the internal camera’s flash or an external flash unit) can be used to remedy the situation.
A flash has a relatively short flash duration, usually around 1/1000 – 1/20000 seconds. The flash duration is the duration of how long the flash illuminates a subject.

Because of this short lighting duration, it is possible to freeze the object of the photo, even with a relatively slow shutter speed (1/60 second, for example) in a low lighting condition.
