Many of you are very talented with your cameras,
knowing when to use a flash and when it is not necessary.
To me it is not a black and white issue.
I decided to take my camera outside on this very overcast afternoon and see what I could find. The verdict is not clear...each picture is its own answer.
Cosmos with flash and then without flash.
Portulaca and Artemisia with flash and then without.
Crape Myrtle with and then without.
For some of these photos I like the flash, but on others it washes out the color. This tells me to try various settings when out in the garden, trying my hand at photography. (Yes I know a few of them are a little blurry....lighting was the question at hand.....we can work on the blur factor another time! )
