Oh, how true, how true! However, I've been able to do away with so much flash with my new body. Can put on a 500mm and handhold interior shots of choirs and such and not be grainy/noisy much at all. I've gotten to where I embrace them new-fangled gadgets. Also like going on a vacation and not having to look forward to $500 of processing the 40 rolls I would come back with.Thanks, I was told too they use spider webs as nesting material too. Thanks for the comments.
We had a commercial photo studio back in the film days and quit when things went digital. I really struggle with digital thinking, trying to teach an old dog new tricks. One trick I used with wedding photography was I set my camera at f 5.6 at a 60 of a second and duct taped it in place. I knew how far to be away from the subjects with my flash. It allowed me to schmooze with folks and helped them relax. Now with digital it seems like if I touch one button or another everything goes south fast.
