The inbuilt pop-up flash in most camera’s is purely for amateurs. It has no potential to create great photographs when fired directly over the subject. Being a compact camera user, I always wished it had an hotshoe so I could mount an external flashgun for creative lighting. Left with no hotshoe option, I decided to bounce it using a white card paper from another white paper. The results were astonishingly brilliant. I regret not having done this before though I had it on my mind for sometime now.
I shoot & upload a photo each day. Its challenging & I love it. Keep track of my daily photo on : 365 Project
It would be great if you can join me there as that would make you a better photographer. Also, feel free to check out my photos daily & give your feedback. Hope my photos inspire you to shoot everyday. :)
