Don't mock the flash


The flash is often ridiculed. Like, haha oh my are you going to use the pop-up flash??
And I mean sure, used the wrong way, it will look like shit. But if you know what you're doing then the flash can be the perfect tool for an awesome picture. That's why I was a little dumbed about the fact that my 5D Mark II doesn't have a pop-up. Sure I have an external flash, but there is a lot I can do with a simple pop-up.
What do you think about the matter?

  1. i think the photo is great, and the light is just spot on. I was wondering though, would you consider making some sort of tortourial for pop-up flash?

  3. Jag gillar också blixt, ibland. Har man en popupbixt kan man hålla en sked över och skjuta den i taket :)

  4. I know what you mean, people don't think much of the pop-up flash, but you can really do a lot with it. In my opinion, you don't need the newest and most advanced equipment, you just need a lot of fantasy and creativity! <3 sofie

  6. Hmmm, I don't usually take photos with flash. Not that I'm against it, I just like my photos with natural light.
