    how do you get the effect for having a really dark pic, and half of the persons face is lit up. do you have to bounce the flash and just get a little bit? I don't understand how the flash doesn't reech both sides of their face.

    You need an off camera light source. Put it to one side, and the head itself blocks the light from the other side. Use a flash extension cord, or available lighting like a window.
