Flash 101: Making Better Light

Using flash has always been a necessary part of our photographic lives - especially when it comes to capturing candid, hand-held photos indoors. Many of us have been driven to take these photos simply out of necessity rather than as an opportunity to create truly memorable photos we can be proud of.
