To get decent flower pictures, do you use the onboard flash? Buy a hot shoe flash?

Hello Andy,

I use a hot shoe flash on my cameras. Much of my flower photography is in the field, and it is convenient to carry a small flash in my bag.

These are from my garden:

I photograph  a lot at night - here, a night blooming Cereus cactus

Day time Fill flash to "throw" light deep inside a flower

Night time

Day time
