So the first thing that we will be talking about to get better pictures, is flash.
Some people prefer to use flash all of the time because they think that it will help their pictures.
I, on the other hand, do not use flash on most of my pictures.
If you are shooting somewhere that already has pretty good lighting, I would turn the flash off.
Some people can't really see the difference between a picture with flash and a picture without flash.
I think that if you don't use flash, your pictures will have a softer look to them. The flash brings out a lot of the shadows in your picture and makes your subject look like it is in weird lightning.
Here are some sample pictures. The first one is the one with flash, and the last one is the one without the flash.
Do you see the difference?
Again, for most of my pictures I turn the flash off.
Natural light is a lot better than flash:)
