Simple lighting setups with flash

    Some time ago, like one often reads in this and other photo groups, I
    was of the opinion that I should avoid flash at all costs. It simply
    wasn't possible to capture natural-looking photos unless one relied
    exclusively on ambient/available light -- and for that, one best get
    the fastest lens and highest ISO performance camera available. Who
    could blame me for such an outlook? Everytime I used the built-in
    flash in my camera, the results were a mess! And prior experience with
    small, inflexible flash units didn't impress either.

    I soon found out, though, that except for very special occasions, the
    quality (color, direction) just wasn't there for a lot of the family
    and friends events I photograph when I relied exclusively on available
    light. During recent family and friends get-togethers, I've tried some
    simple on/off-camera flash setups that you may want to try out. I am
    encouraged with the results, some of which I sample here:
