Re: Awful pics using the flash in FZ150


Straight on flash pictures tend to be very flat. The lighting is often quite harsh, and the biggest problem putting the flash an inch above the lens is red eye.

I found the very best flash pictures I have taken was using an external flash pointed up towards the ceiling at about a 45 degree angle and using a diffuser to spread the light around. Using a TTL flash, you get the right exposure and you get modelling around the subject's features eliminating that flat look.
