I Hate Flash…

Why? It scares me, it defies me to con­trol it, demands man­ual con­trol for best results. And mostly, it beats me… so much so that I bought this book, this flash, this cam­era, and finally, this lens to wres­tle back con­trol at the darker points of the my pho­to­graphic adventure.

If I am hon­est with myself, I don’t know how to use it cor­rectly, and have the pho­to­graphic evi­dence to prove it! This post from Photocritic.Org might just put me on the path to flash redemp­tion, and cure me of my past sins..

It can cast harsh shad­ows, espe­cially when you for­get to remove the lens hood!

It can wash EVERYTHING out. And off course, there is Red Eye!

It can reflect in glasses, win­dows… even been known to sparkle of the odd shiny nose or forehead.

And if you are using it, so is every­body else. Flash attack from all angles!

Occa­sion­ally…

Just occa­sion­ally…

It can work out all right :-)
