Using Flash Creatively

Use flash to freeze actions that would otherwise be blurred.
A flash captured this white moth on a pink lady slipper with great depth of field and lifelike colors.
Your choices with flash may be to freeze action, make its illumination obvious and noticeable in the image, or to unobtrusively raise the level of illumination in a scene that would otherwise be too dark for easy shooting.

By getting down at the same level, the flash portrait becomes much more interesting than if I'd stood and shot down.

By holding the flash off to the side it casts hard shadows on the wall that dramatically emphasize the subject. Courtesy of Tim Connor.

Using flash out of doors isolated the girl with the snake, making her the center of attention.
