The newest addition to my camera back is my external flash. It's pretty. I like it and it does exactly what I was hoping it would do!!! My brother walked into my office as I was trying it out and his first words were... "Wow, you look powerful!" And to be honest... I felt powerful! Few things are as motivating as seeing time after time, an image created that was exactly how you had seen it in your head.
And just so you know it's not all in my head... check out the difference...
This shot was taken with an in camera flash... notice the icky glare, nasty yellowish green color and unnatural shadows? Blech!
How can it compare? I mean, really??
