Controlling Your Camera’s Flash

Controlling Your Camera's Flash

Interesting little commentary from David Pogue. I especially like this part, which I've known for years, and am amazed at how many people don't:

"Your camera's flash probably has a range of about 10 feet. Beyond that distance, it does nothing at all—except waste battery power and annoy people."

"You know when thousands of flashes go off at a rock concert, football game, or school play? Don't be one of those clueless people. They're all firing their flashes for nothing. Do they really think they're going to illuminate a singer, football player, or actor from 200 yards away?"

"The second time to avoid using the flash is, well, whenever possible. A no-flash picture is almost always better-looking and more realistic than a flash picture."
