I stumbled across a very interesting and informative photography blog yesterday. The most significant thing that I took from it is the concept of bouncing flash BEHIND you to minimize shadows. I have struggled with using flash because I don't like the harsh, flat, artificial look it can so often give. But using only ambient light doesn't always work. He has some very interesting ideas, with examples, on the subject! Also check out what he calls the Black Foamie Thing, a light modifier that works in a way I've never considered. I'm going to have to make one of those. Anyway, great info on here, have a look!
