The classes that I took pounded into me that flash is bad.

... which is absolute rubbish.  Anyone "teaching" that shouldn't be giving lessons.

So I thought I should try to avoid it. It can cause wash-out if used in the wrong situations

No.  It can cause washout if used wrongly - but that's the way it's used, not the situation.  Read Lighting 101 Archive (drop down menu on right-hand side.

Using flash poorly is obviously bad, but so is using a camera or any tool wrongly bad.  The object of lessons should be how to do things well, not just to reject them.
