Well I've found myself lately not using my flash at all. For everything... I've been relying on aperture, different ISOS and miscellaneous lighting equipment when needed. I mostly shoot landscapes and black & white portraits... is this an unprofessional habit? how often do you guys use your flash? I feel that I have more control without a flash, maybe it's because I haven't mastered it yet but when shooting shiny objects it looks horrible, and peoples faces tend to look harsh. Is it just me? I'm asking because I have noticed that most photographers never leave home without a flash.
