I do see some uses for flash in photography, I do, but mostly I avoid using it.
During the last two years I’ve hardly used it all. I prefer what in photography is called «natural light», which is any light present that’s not a flash or flash setup, including various common electrical lamps and lights in living rooms, streets and such.
Photographers favoring use of flash claim everyone would use flash «if only they knew everything you can do with it», but that just isn’t the case. It isn’t really that difficult to know and do. I and others quite simply prefer natural light.
Natural light, generally speaking makes better photographs.
I will return to this subject later, with illustrations.
