    :rofl:

    People that don't use flash or try and teach others not to, only say that because they don't know how to properly use one.

    It's like photographers that advertise themselves as "I OnLy UsE tHe LiGhT tHaT nAtUrE gAvE uS"

    aka - I'm a shitty hobbyist who never learned how to use flash properly

    natural light has its place of course but anyone who says 'never use flash' has a very limited understanding of photography



    In the context of photojournalism I can only imagine/hope that teacher was trying to discourage people from using flash at first - learn to use natural light then learn when/how to supplement with flash. Plenty of award winning photos in journalism where flash was used.

    I can't properly fade myself like I used to back in the day; I tried it months ago and had an area in the back I never got right so got discouraged.

    I need to trim my beard too, but not without a haircut

    You cut your own hair?

    Fill flash

    using flash as fill is one of the biggest reasons to use flash, especially in environments where you have zero control over the subject like - photographing a lion that would gladly eat your face if you tried telling it to move into better light

    That being said it’s nowhere as bright lol. It’s more of a decoration than a usable studio light. If I put a higher water bulb in there it would be usable for photo use.

    I think that was the idea -- turn something old from storage into a decoration

    I was thinking more for film/video where you need continuous light (not strobe) and a variety of colors

    I think my professor was meaning most of the time, generally you won’t be using it. I definitely understand flash’s place in the world though. I never use it.
