Please Don't Flash Me!

Turn off the flash - There are a few things that are common in almost every point and shoot camera. The pictures on this page were taken with a 3.5 mega pixel the Canon Powershot A510. One of the first things I noticed was that the flash distorts colors. The flash seemed to give an orange cast to my pictures. The best pictures are produced with a low, natural light.

While using the flash can give your pictures just the effect you are looking for, I wouldn't say it is natural. You can purchase separate lighting that will bring in a whole different look and feel to your photos. But for that natural soft look that enhances the beauty of your flowers it is best to turn off that flash.

See you next time when we explore Tip Number Four - Step Back for a better view.
