take it to the next level

Flash is bad only at the most basic shooting level.

Fill flash is a valuable technique for reducing shadows and harsh lighting during outdoor shooting. Also works for extreme back lighting.

Most beginners, when shown how to properly use flash, love it. We don't have the luxury of shooting in a studio at all times. And while on vacation, we don't have access to a lighting studio.

I do miss the flash.

I don't even ever use flash on my point and shoots or my iPhone. The single best thing most people can do for their photography is disable the flash.
