Re: Flash

The classes that I took pounded into me that flash is bad. So I thought I should try to avoid it. It can cause wash-out if used in the wrong situations but before I took the classes I didn't think anything of it.

Those classes aren't helping much.

I don't use flash very often, as I'm mostly shooting outdoors, but flash is a whole subject in itself and takes a fair bit of technique to get good results. The built-in flash can be used, but an off-camera flash where you can control the intensity and angle of the flash is very commonly used.

BTW, there was a Freudian typo in my previous rant about training sessions. I meant "thinking along different lines" rather than "lies". Maybe I should go to typing classes.
